Last week, BJ hosted “Arabs and Jews Choosing a Shared Future,” a conversation about Jewish-Arab cooperation, in partnership with New Israel Fund.
The event featured co-directors Sally Abed and Alon-Lee Green of Standing Together (Omdim Beyachad-Naqif Ma’an), an organization that champions Arab-Jewish partnership. Amidst the challenging backdrop of Israeli history, they shared their personal stories and the collective journey of creating a society that embodies peace, equality, and social justice for all.
Their discussion served as a beacon of hope in this difficult time, and their dedication illustrates a shared future where differences are bridges, not barriers.
