A Vision for One-State in Israel-Palestine

Venue: Winchevsky Centre  585 Cranbrooke Ave. (near Bathurst/Lawrence)

What happens when everyone realizes the elusive two-state solution is truly dead and buried?  An invitation to Jewish communities in Toronto/GTA, and others, to join an important conversation with Jonathan Kuttab, a Palestinian lawyer and a visionary of what is possible in an area that seems so impossibly without hope.

What might a one-state look like?  What would be required from the Israeli Jews, Palestinians living in Israel, the occupied Palestinians and the world community. What is the role of Diaspora Jews and Palestinian refugees? The United Jewish Peoples’ Order (UJPO) invites you to join in this important and timely conversation. Presentation followed by Q&A discussion.
