New York Jewish Agenda Presents: Allies Debate the Two-State Solution

At a time when progressive Zionists have united in opposition to annexation, Peter Beinart’s provocative essay in Jewish Currents, and his New York Times op-ed, divides allies. Beinart’s contention that a two-state solution is unattainable, and that a binational state provides the only path to achieving a just resolution to the conflict, has challenged the conventional wisdom and ignited a vigorous debate.

NYJA was proud to host “Divided We Stand: Allies Debate the Two-State Solution,” featuring NYJA co-founder and board member Rabbi Rachel Timoner, Senior Rabbi of Congregation Beth Elohim, in conversation with Peter Beinart, J Street President Jeremy Ben-Ami, and T’ruah Executive Director Rabbi Jill Jacobs.
