The Community Conversation continues…Israel and Palestine

November 5, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The Community Conversation continues…Israel and Palestine
Sunday, November 5th
12- 2 pm, following worship service
First Parish Parlor

On Thursday October 26, forty people gathered in the parlor to engage in a conversation about Israel and Gaza. This coming Sunday, after worship, the conversation continues. All are welcome. You may bring a bag lunch and nosh. Contributions to share are welcome!

We will begin by watching an hour of a forum with four Dartmouth professors about the crisis. The forum was held on October 12. After viewing the forum, Rev. Marta Flanagan and Rev. Erica Richmond will facilitate a conversation of those gathered. Our goal is not to come up with a political consensus or institutional response, instead to hear one another and to stay in relationship across our differences.

Those who participated in the Dartmouth Forum include:

  • Ezzedine Fishere, an Egyptian novelist, diplomat and academic who was a leader during Egypt’s Tahrir Square protests
  • Susannah Heschel, chair of the Jewish studies department at Dartmouth
  • Jonathan Smolin, a Middle Eastern studies professor who teaches Arabic literature
  • Bernard Avishai, an Israeli scholar and New Yorker contributor
