Tuesday, November 30, 2021  Featuring Michal Cotler-Wunsh and Gadeer Kamal-Mreeh

This interactive conversation unpacks the factors contributing to and inhibiting an authentic relationship between Americans and Israelis in the 21st Century and the concrete ways in which each of us can work toward deepening this critical relationship.
