225 American Jews and Israel - A Conversation With Rabbi Bradley Artson

The recent conflict in Gaza led to difficult conversations. Not least for liberal American Jews. Mike and Benji invited Rabbi Bradley Artson to discuss his open letter to Rabbinical students about framing those conversations with empathy. Where are liberal American Jews today when it comes to Israeli current events? How can we communicate productively when we disagree passionately? How can our different perspectives enrich us, rather than divide us? What do these difficult conversations say about us? What do they mean for our future? Join us! Rabbi Bradley Shavit Artson is the Vice President at the American Jewish University, and holds the Abner & Roslyn Goldstine Dean’s Chair at the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies.
