On June 20, 2021, the NIFC New Generations Leadership Council hosted experts Nivine Sandouka, Aviv Tatarsky, and Amy Cohen to teach us “Sheikh Jarrah 101”. The event was moderated by Leadership Council member Rachel Landau.

How did a “real estate dispute” tip-off rockets and bombing that killed 269 people, including 68 children, in Israel/Palestine? What happened in Sheikh Jarrah, and how does it fit into the wider context of the conflict? What might Israel’s new government mean for the occupation?

This was the first event in the New Generations Leadership Council’s speaker series, which will bring our New Generations community up to speed on a range of issues that have crystallized into the current situation in Palestine/Israel.
