This podcast was recorded during the Winter Pardes Executive Learning Seminar, 2018.
Faculty: Micah Goodman is teaching.
Class Description: Since the Six-Day War, Israelis have been entrenched in a national debate over whether to keep the land they conquered or to return some, if not all, of the territories to Palestinians. We will examine the ideas that have shaped Israelis’ thinking on both sides of the debate and show how the paradox of Israeli political discourse is that both sides are right in what they affirm—and wrong in what they deny. Instead of presenting possibilities for a comprehensive solution, which seems impossible, we will try to suggest a compelling case for pragmatism, exploring how the conflict can be reduced in scope and danger through limited, practical steps.
