Finding a Way Forward for Jews and Palestinians in This Terrible Time


7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Raja Khouri and Jeffrey Wilkinson in Conversation with Mira Sucharov

Amidst the current grief, trauma, and pain and the intense expressions of distrust, enmity, and hate between the Jewish and Palestinian communities in the Diaspora, what can be done to bring North American Palestinian and Jewish communities together? A lot according to Raja Khouri and Jeffrey Wilkinson in their new book, The Wall Between: What Jews and Palestinians Don’t Want to Know about Each Other. Join Raja and Jeff in a frank discussion with Carleton political scientist Mira Sucharov about what we must do.

RAJA G. KHOURI is CEO of Khouri Conversations, a human rights and inclusion consultant, the founding president of the Canadian Arab Institute, board member at Project Rozana (Canada), and a former 10-year commissioner with the Ontario Human Rights Commission. He is Canada Committee member of Human Rights Watch, and co-founder of the Canadian Arab/Jewish Leadership Dialogue Group.

JEFFREY J. WILKINSON, PhD, is an American Jew who lives in Canada. He holds a doctorate in Education from the University of Toronto and works actively in the Jewish community and beyond on issues relating to trauma and the Israel/Palestine struggle. Jeff’s partnership with Raja, borne out of deep listening and learning together, has become central to his work.
