You Can't Ask That: Jews and Palestinians

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
This session takes a challenging conversation between Sydney Palestinians and Jews and opens it to Limmud participants. Members of Partners for Peace (P4P) will respond honestly and respectfully to questions put to them – however awkward or ‘politically incorrect’ the questions might be in other settings. P4P is a group of Australian Jews and Palestinians who work together to understand each other's history, narratives, and realities to demonstrate an alternative to bitterness and conflict. P4P supports any mutually agreed solution that will allow both peoples collective self-determination and equality, peace, freedom, dignity, security and democracy between the Jordan and the Mediterranean.
