What We Talk About When We Talk About Israel: A Conversation with Daniel Gordis
Moderated by Bari Weiss of Tablet Magazine
JFNA General Assembly 2012

The aim of this discussion is to explore the way we Jews talk about Israel publicly, what our current boundaries of conversation are and what they ought to be. What someone views as tough love, another views as airing dirty laundry. Can opposing settlement construction be a pro-Israel position, or is unconditional backing of the Israeli government the only way to show full support? Was it inappropriate for J Street to publicly criticize Operation Cast Lead, or did the organization have an obligation to question the military action against Gaza? Join Jay Michaelson and Daniel Gordis for what is sure to be a spirited conversation.
