On July 24th, the New York Jewish Agenda (NYJA) hosted the first virtual event in our “On the Agenda” discussion series. The event, “Divided We Stand: Allies Debate the Two-State Solution,” featured Peter Beinart, T’ruah Executive Director Rabbi Jill Jacobs, and J Street President Jeremy Ben-Ami, in a discussion moderated by NYJA co-founder Rabbi Rachel Timoner.
NYJA was founded by rabbis, advocates, and leaders with deep ties to the Jewish community and a clear vision of the difference an organized liberal Jewish voice could make in New York City and State. In just a few months, our network has grown exponentially, from Buffalo to Brooklyn. With shared values and in the great tradition of New York Jewry, we have already impacted and shifted the public debate.
