Jerusalem Crisis: What’s Happening, What’s Being Done, What’s Needed

May 12 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Recent days have seen an escalation in violence in Jerusalem even beyond what we were seeing in the past few weeks. With the violent events at Al-Aqsa mosque, police crackdowns on Palestinian protesters, the threat of home evictions in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, and the Jerusalem Day Flag March, the city is in a state of crisis.
Join us for an urgent conversation with leading Palestinian and Israeli experts from Jerusalem to update us about what is happening on the ground, what Israelis and Palestinians are doing, and what we can do from afar.
