What are the facts and history of the Middle East Peace Process? What needs to be considered about the move of the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem? How does this impact us all?
Please join us as a distinguished panel led by Dr. Russell Arnold, Associate Professor of Religious Studies at Regis University, will offer an interactive and multi-visual talk about these issues and techniques for communicating around them.
This session will emphasize audience participation and is appropriate for both first time attendees and as a follow-up to session one.
The purpose of this seminar is not to hear and hash out the main arguments for and against policy decision, but instead to build relationships and the skills to talk with each other about important issues on which we disagree.
Reasons to attend the seminar include:
to learn to talk productively with others about important issues that shape who we are as individuals, communities, and as a society;
to understand our personal attachments to Jerusalem/Al Quds and its people;
to engage in dialogue in a deeper understanding of another's perspective;
to be more sophisticated consumers of media about Israel/Palestine, and the middle east more generally.
Can we build relationships with people with a different perspective than ours and engage in dialogue for deeper understanding of another’s perspective?
