Join us for the Task Force All-Members Meeting, Jewish-Arab Relations: In Israel and in American Jewish Discourse on December 5 from 8:30 am-2:30 pm.
In the year of Israel's 70th anniversary, the spotlight on Arab citizens and Jewish-Arab relations has intensified in Israel and in the Diaspora. Join the Task Force for a day of shared learning on recent developments in the field and North American Jewish educational priorities on these issues.
Our quarterly publication covers recent developments in government, legislation, civil society, and public discourse in the field.
The Task Force helped develop and wil moderate a session at the 2018 General Assembly on efforts to close socio-economic gaps between Israel's Arab and Jewish communities.
With growing gaps between the Arab and Jewish communities in Israel, Israel’s survival relies on innovative and effective solutions. In this session, we’ll learn about cutting-edge programs and interventions in the fields of education, employment and municipal programming which address the challenges and opportunities facing Israel and its largest minority community.
