Is Israel locked in a tragic dispute between two peoples claiming the same land – or a global conflict between Western democracy and Islamist terrorism? Is partition into two states the only way to ensure Israel’s survival – or is it the surest path to ever-increasing bloodshed and possibly even endangering Israel’s survival? Join us as American Jewish thought leaders Jonathan Tobin and J.J. Goldberg will debate these and other critical suppositions about the State of Israel.
J.J. Goldberg, editor-at-large of The Forward and former U.S. bureau chief of the Israeli news-magazine The Jerusalem Report, will present a liberal viewpoint and Jonathan Tobin, senior online editor and chief political blogger of Commentary Magazine, a conservative one.
Congregation Beth Adam, Congregation Adath Israel, Congregation Beth Israel, Sha’arei Torah, Rockdale Temple, Temple Sholom and Wise Temple are co-sponsoring this debate.
