Like people and organizations around the world, Extend pivoted our work online in 2020. The conversations we usually have in our partner communities in Israel and Palestine moved to Zoom. Below you can find Extend talks with many of the most inspiring Palestinian, Israeli, and American Jewish organizations at work today: Combatants for Peace, Breaking the Silence, Meretz, Standing Together, Mossawa, the Tel Aviv Review, +972, Jewish Currents, the Center for Jewish Nonviolence, Achvat Amim, and more.
These conversations cover Annexation, Covid-19’s effect on Palestinians living under occupation, the changing relationship of American Jews to Israel, the anti-Netanyahu protests in Jerusalem, civil rights activism of Palestinian citizens of Israel, and the future of the Israeli left. The voices include many of the most recognized thinkers and activists of our moment, such as Sulaiman Khatib, Peter Beinart, Sam Bahour, Merphie Bubis, Mossi Raz, Gilad Halpern, and Orly Noy. Please enjoy, and we hope you will join us on Extend programming as soon as it becomes possible.
