Emanu El: Is the Two-State Solution the Only Viable Option? A Conversation with Dr. Meron Medzini

February 10, 2022 12:30PM - 1:30PM

Thursday, February 10 at 12:30 p.m.
There is a lot of talk about the “two-state solution,” often assumed to be the only viable option for peace in the Middle East.

In this Zoom conversation, live from Israel, Dr. Meron Medzini, Professor Emeritus of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and former communications director for several of Israel’s prime ministers, suggests that there are several other possibilities for the resolution of the Israel-Palestinian conflict.

In a conversation moderated by his son, Mickey, who guided the Shirley Barish Memorial Israel Experience trip in 2018, we will discuss some of them, including Federation, Confederation, and many more. Dr. Medzini will also provide a brief review of the components of the conflict and the parameters that have to be addressed in each solution.
