Co/Lab: Reimagine Jewish presents the work of the Israeli organization The Abraham Initiatives

Rabbi Josh Rose sits down with The Abraham Initiative's Jimmy Taber to discuss the organization's work.  It is  a Jewish-Israeli and Palestinian-Israeli organization that advances social inclusion and equal rights for Israel's Palestinian citizens by influencing public policy, shaping public opinion and demonstrating practical models for a shared society.  The group's boundary-breaking work is a crucial light of hope at a very difficult time. 

The two will discuss the profound challenges facing such programs in the wake of October 7th, as well as the opportunities that come from this collaborative work.  The conversation will also include reflection on the profound divisions within the American Jewish community and how we might confront this painful split at this time.
