9781556434846: Healing Israel/Palestine: A Path to Peace and Reconciliation

Healing Israel/Palestine shows that it is possible to be both pro-Israel and pro-Palestine, and provides a clear blueprint for a peace settlement. Unequivocally opposed to war makers and terrorists, Rabbi Michael Lerner asserts that a spiritual and progressive perspective, rooted in the highest values of the human race, is crucial. Perfect for individuals, discussion groups, and organizations, this book answers difficult philosophical and political questions that emerge when advocating peace and justice in the Middle East. It includes extensive historical information with a focus on current events, photographs, and detailed political maps of the region. An appendix provides resources for readers interested in activism.

About the Author:

Rabbi Michael Lerner was mentored by Abraham Joshua Heschel at the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York. He received a Ph.D. in philosophy (ethics and political philosophy) from the University of California, Berkeley in 1972 and a Ph.D. in social/clinical psychology from the Wright Institute in Berkeley in 1977. Since then he has served as director of the Institute for Labor and Mental Health, Dean of the Graduate School of Psychology at New College of California, and founder of Beyt Midrash le'Shelom in Jerusalem. He was he co-founder of TIKKUN Magazine and has served as the editor since its inception in 1986.

From Publishers Weekly:

Rabbi Lerner, founder of the progressive Jewish journal Tikkun, may or may not have the answer to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, but he does have answers for progressive Jews who are trying to find a way of understanding the conflict and find a stance that is pro-Israel without being anti-Palestinian. "The first step in the process of healing is to tell the story of how we got where we are in a way that avoids demonization," he writes. So he relates the history of Zionism and the state of Israel in a way that acknowledges both the rights, and the wrongs, of Jews and Palestinians alike. His evenhandedness may irritate readers who feel strongly for one side or the other, but his answers to tough questions (why should Israelis deal in good faith with the Palestinian people? How can the violence end when some Palestinians want to destroy Israel?) will aid many who are perplexed by the complexity of the region's long-lasting conflict. b&w photos.
