    What does it mean to be pro-Israel in the Obama era?
    By Jan Jaben-Elion
    Did US President Barack Obama’s speech in Cairo sharpen the differences in how American Jews espouse their support for Israel, or has it moderated the divergent opinions, bringing the wider pro-Israel Jewish community closer together? [Read More]

    Jewish Leaders Send Plea For Peace to Next President
    Four rabbis and two cantors from the Atlanta metro-area are joining nearly 700 others from across the country to seize on this traditional time for communal evaluation and reflection in calling on the next president to make vigilant U.S. leadership in resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict a top priority of his administration, reversing eight years of diplomatic neglect.

    Jan Jaben-Eilon
    Atlanta’s Limmud offered the Jewish community an assortment of speakers and presenters, most of who were from our own community. But not all.
    Thanks to Brit Tzedek v’Shalom, the Jewish Alliance for Justice and Peace, two speakers came all the way from Jerusalem to share their insights into the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. [Read More]

    Letter to the Editor: Gift of Peace
    Jan Jaben-Eilon
    I just returned from Israel, where I had an opportunity to get a sense of the feeling on the ground about the "peace process" and President Bush's trip to Jerusalem. I was surprised by the incredible hopelessness and helplessness felt by many Israelis. Although they didn't seem to place much weight on Bush's visit, they hold onto a tiny thread of hope that only the United States can make the Israelis and Palestinians reach the negotiated two-state solution sought by the majority on both sides.

    Ex-Israeli soldier urges dialogue instead of fighting
    Moni Basu
    Elik Elhanan drove with fear into the heart of the Palestinian territories. The former Israeli soldier had never seen a Palestinian except down the barrel of a gun. Now he was about to meet face-to-face with former "terrorists" in an area that was off-limits to Israelis. Palestinian suicide bombers killed Elhanan's sister Smadar in downtown Jerusalem in 1997. She was 14. Innocent. Her life was brutally ended because she was Jewish. Read More

    Listen to Arab Americans
    Last November, I attended the Brit Tzedek v'Shalom (Jewish Alliance for Justice and Peace) conference, in Boston. The pro Israel organization advocates a negotiated settlement to the Israeli Palestinian conflict. There were many Jewish participants, including rabbis, Israeli politicians and military leaders. However, the speaker who made the strongest impact on my personal vision of a two state solution was James Zogby, Arab American Institute president.
