A Path Forward: Creating A Political Horizon For Israel-Palestine

June 9 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm CDT

From our partners at J Street:

“Over seven months since October 7th, J Street continues to call for the return of the hostages, increased humanitarian aid in Gaza, and an end to the war. Despite the daily turmoil, we hold onto hope for a secure and peaceful future for Israel-Palestine. Dr. Debra Shushan, J Street Director of Policy, will be joined by Special Guest Congressman Sean Casten (IL-6) and Mideast policy experts representing Israeli, Palestinian and Arab perspectives to discuss:

  • Five steps to achieve regional security and self-determination for Israelis and Palestinians, recommended by a recent J Street Policy Expert Symposium.
  • Potential enablers and spoilers on the path forward.
  • How the crisis plays out in Congress for Representative Casten.
  • What we in the American Jewish community can do to take action and make a difference.
  • Connect with other members of the Chicago community who care about this issue

This free event at Beth Emet The Free Synagogue is open to the public. Light snacks and refreshments will be offered after the program. Virtual attendance is available.

Register for in-person ticket or livestream.
