May 25th talk with Dr. Rachel Shenhav-Goldberg — Emotional Barriers for Reconciliation
The ‘tribal encounter’ described by Ben-Gurion and President Rivlin’s Four Tribes Speech express the most significant characteristic of Israeli society from its beginning: its character as a multi-group society with internal tensions and disagreements. This feature makes Israeli society a deeply divided one. Racheli will explore racial relations in Israel with us.

Dr. Rachel Shenhav-Goldberg is an academic researcher, group facilitator and an activist. She is a New Israel Fund of Canada Naomi Chazan fellow. She has a post-doctorate from the University of Toronto and Ph.D. in Social Work from Tel Aviv University. Her research focuses on race relations in Israel and antisemitism in North-America.
