FEDERATION CJA - Combined Jewish Appeal
1, Cummings Square
We will hear inspiring, timely thoughts on the topic of freedom from the American-Israeli hostage negotiator who was instrumental in successfully securing Gilad Schalit’s release, Gershon Baskin, PhD.
Gershon Baskin will share insights from his over 40 years of intensive pursuit of peace. Gershon was involved in creating & directing the Institute for Education for Jewish-Arab Coexistence and founding and co-directing the only joint Israeli Palestinian public policy think & do-tank in the world. During the many cycles of peace negotiations, Gershon Baskin has served not only as an trusted adviser to many of the regions leaders, but also as a radical agitator advocating a sustainable peace. In the book, Gershon Baskin reveals how relations in the Middle East are based on justified fear, influenced by lack of human contact and reinforced by continued violence that solidify patterns of thinking and behavior that negatively influence public policies. Dr. Baskin shares his life experience and wisdom in transforming the sustentation of the conflict to breaking out of animosity and turning a new page. What the parties in conflict say and do are mutually influential and reinforcing in keeping the parties in conflict.
The event will be held in the Gelber Conference Centre.
