Daniel Sokatch discusses his book, Can We Talk About Israel? and will break down the hot-button issues of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict that are tearing up dinner tables, political parties, and college campuses.
Moderated by Jonathan Fass, Managing Director, Educational Technology and Strategy at The Jewish Education Project
In Can We Talk About Israel? Sokatch meets the emotional landmines of the issue head-on and answers seemingly off-the-table questions like, “Does there really need to be a ‘Jewish State?’” and “Is Zionism justifiable?” with expert perspective and understanding. The book is the story of why even those on the sidelines of these heated conversations should care, why Israel matters, and why supporting those Israelis and Palestinians working to resolve their conflict is so important, not only for the Middle East, but for America and for the world.
