Is There a Chance of Building Arab Peace With Israel From the Grass-Roots Up?

Is There a Chance of Building Arab Peace With Israel From the Grass-Roots Up?
JNS.orgIsraeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “breaking bread” with Arab leaders at the Warsaw conference on Middle East security was a warming and unprecedented sight.

Why I refused to march

Why I refused to march
By Sarah Levin, JNS (January 22, 2019 / JNS) Like so many other Jewish women, I grappled over and over again with the decision to attend the Women’s March on Jan. 19.
