Reboot Ideas Presents: Can We Talk About Israel?

Hosted By: Reboot

In his highly-anticipated book, Can We Talk About Israel? Daniel Sokatch breaks down the hot button issues of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict that are tearing up dinner tables, political parties and college campuses. Sokatch sits down with homeland security expert and Harvard Kennedy School professor, Juliette Kayyem for a frank discussion about the conflict and how we might move forward with the humanity and imagination this moment requires. While social media continues to flatten the complexities, Sokatch, CEO of New Israel Fund and Reboot board member, provides an in-depth analysis, praised by Publishers Weekly as a “fair-minded primer on one of the world’s most fiercely debated issues.”
