Rabbi Sheila Weinberg, author and co-founder of the Institute for Jewish Spirituality, speaks with me about the current situation in Israel-Palestine. We discuss the role trauma and colonialism play in this ongoing conflict, and she shares the hopeful work of peacemakers who are helping bridge the divide, including Combatants for Peace.
Combatants for Peace is a grassroots movement of Palestinians and Israelis working together to end the occupation and bring peace. Founded by former fighters on both sides of the conflict, Combatants for Peace was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2017 and 2018.
