Bridging the Divide Goals:

  • Provide youth professionals with tools and skills to facilitate conversations across differences on charged issues in Jewish life.
  • Support educators to model important conversations across differences with each other.

Learning Objectives:

Participants will:

  • Learn and practice three facilitation skills for achieving collaborative  conversations across differences:  Following Meaning, Demonstrating Understanding,  Naming Differences.
  • Learn and practice an approach to troubleshooting challenging group  dynamics.
  • Build capacity to use these skills in the course of structured and free flowing conversation to achieve receptivity while addressing  differences directly.
  • Experience multi-vocal, non-prescriptive education on the Israeli Palestinian Conflict to enhance their own learning and to serve as a model for how to  incorporate the skills into work with youth.

The group will meet seven times October–May; in December/January individuals or organizational teams will meet 1:1 for direct coaching with Resetting the Table trainers.
