How to Be Comfortable Having Uncomfortable Conversations

Hosted By: Park Avenue Synagogue

America is so split that trying to speak across the divide can feel impossible. Whether with friends, family, or your community, discussions about race, politics, or Israel can feel too contentious to begin. Explore how to remove the “heat” from these conversations, practice self-care throughout, and rethink what success looks like during a difficult conversation.
