Congregation Beth Or, Maple Glen

Although the topic of how Israel can achieve peace in the Middle East is often divisive within our communities, J.J. Goldberg, editor-at-large of the Forward, and Jonathan Tobin, senior online editor of Commentary, will demonstrate how we can come together to determinedly but civilly articulate one’s opinion. Certain to disagree on many points, Tobin and Goldberg will listen and respond to one another throughout this engaging evening full of lively discussion about the nuances of the current situation.

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.
