What happens when everyone realizes the elusive two-state solution is truly dead and buried? This is an invitation to Jewish and other communities in Toronto and the GTA to join this important conversation with Jonathan Kuttab about what is possible in a place that seems so impossibly without hope.
What might a one-state look like? What would be required from Israeli Jews, Palestinians living inside Israel and in occupied Palestine, and the world community. What is the role of Diaspora Jews and Palestinian refugees? The United Jewish Peoples' Order (UJPO) invites you to join in this important and timely discussion.
