Feedback form is now closed.
This panel aims to help our audience explore a variety of ways one can relate to the state of Israel and its intersection with Judaism. Are these matters separate or intertwined? Through discussion, this panel will provide a space to hear diverse ways in which Jewish students relate to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It will provide an opportunity for others  to feel as though their voices are heard, while exposing the audience to a range of thoughts and tactics of young activists, which may be different than what they are accustomed to. While the panelists are all currently undergraduate students, this presentation is open to people all ages.
