Resetting the Table: Wisdom from Conflict

The Village Square

Location: Online

This podcast episode of Village SquareCast will drop on February 23rd. You can find it wherever you get your podcasts or at https://podfollow.com/villagesquarecast/view. 

As part of our spring 2024 virtual lecture series, “UNUM: Democracy Reignited,” we’ll engage international expertise in service of quelling increasingly dangerous divisions here at home. Drawing on decades of experience addressing volatile disagreements surrounding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Resetting the Table works to transform toxic polarization and destructive political conflict in the U.S.. We’ll check in with the Resetting the Table team around the escalating tragedy in the Middle East to learn what lessons we can.

We’ll be joined by Resetting the Table’s Co-Founding CEO, Melissa Weintraub, a veteran peacebuilder and social entrepreneur who has spent her career building transformative communication across divides, overcoming dehumanization and distrust, and working toward a shared society in both the U.S. and Israel-Palestine.
