Civil Dialogue for Uncivil Times has been postponed due to the Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl victory parade. The new date and time are to be determined.
The path to peace in the Middle East is heavily debated within our Jewish communities. J.J. Goldberg, editor-at-large of the Forward, and Jonathan Tobin, editor in chief of the Jewish News Service and a contributing writer for National Review, two Jewish-American thought leaders, will debate arguments from the Left and the Right about this complex issue and demonstrate how we can come together to determinedly but civilly articulate one’s opinion, even if we disagree. Join us for an engaging and informative evening full of lively discussion.
Afterwards, Tobin and Goldberg’s conversation will be a springboard for a series of workshops throughout Greater Philadelphia on maintaining civil dialogue about Israel. Join us and other participants throughout the year in developing the skills necessary for effective, civil communication about controversial themes.
