In Israel, debate and dissent are seen as legitimate expressions of care and engagement in Israel’s vibrant political conversation.  However, such discussions in the American Jewish community often result in hurtful judgment and high emotions. Shutting down conversation should not be an option on an issue so central to our identity. How can we have constructive conversations about Israel and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict that don’t end in shouting matches?
