Learn With Hope
Learn with your heart, your mind, and your spirit.
There are so many words out there on the internet about Palestine and Israel, the current conflict, the historical context, and what is happening right this minute. There are stories and videos of sorrow, violence, and loss. And also stories and videos of people standing together across a divide, supporting one another, and refusing to be enemies.
Peace. Shalom. Salam. Shlama.
WEBINARS WORTH WATCHING
These are a series of webinars offered since October 7th that I have found valuable. They offer perspectives into life in Israel and Palestine in the last months from people who live there. The resilience and honesty of the speakers gives me hope.

HISTORY AND CONTEXT
Do you want to know more about the history of Israel and Palestine – ideally from an unbiased source?
VOX has a good video about the roots of the conflict(created before October 7th but still very relevant), and the Jewish Currents has a long but very informative article with lots of questions and answers about the conflict.
FOOD FOR THE SOUL
A thoughtful and caring video by Gabor Mate about the situation in Israel and Palestine.
