Seattle is excited to host Peter Beinart, one of American Jewry’s preeminent commentators, to address prospects for Israeli-Palestinian peace and increasing divides within Israeli society in the aftermath of this summer’s destructive fighting between Israel and Hamas. Join us for a conversation about how a changing American Jewry relates to a changing Israel and Middle East.
