Watch the event live on NIF US’s Facebook page

Since Hamas’s brutal attack on Israeli communities on October 7th and the Israeli army’s devastating bombardment of Gaza, many of us have found ourselves pressured to pick a side. But as people who so deeply believe in the humanity of both Israelis and Palestinians—we know that the only way out is through partnership and joint work across divides.

Join the Progressive Israel Network on Tuesday, January 30 at 12 PM ET / 11 AM CT / 9 AM PT for an online convening where we will hear from Israelis and Palestinians who are thinking and acting on a vision of Israel as a shared place—a place where the futures of Jewish Israelis and Palestinians are bound up together.
