A Security Fence or a Dangerous Wall?: Exploring the Political and Moral Implications of Israel's Construction Project
Stephen P. Cohen and Tamara Cohen

In this session, Stephen Cohen will share insights and analysis about the wall and its implications for the future of negotiations, based on a recent ten day trip to Israel to research the wall. Participants will also have the opportunity to discuss strategies for talking about the wall among BTVS supporters and potential supporters. The session will also include a brief replicable text study, lead by Tamara Cohen, examining the meaning of walls in some Jewish texts. The session facilitators intention is to equip participants with information, stimulate deeper analysis and provide a model of bringing a discussion of the wall's implications into local Jewish communities.
