These times tempt us to teach a Jewish experience of fear and pessimism clothed as "reality." Yet the history of the Jewish people is a complex yet glorious story of taking from and giving to the cultures amongst whom we have lived. KIVUNIM's international study and travel bring to life a rich integration, some might even say positive assimilation as the more complete story of the Jewish people amongst the nations for the past 2000 years. This session will advocate for a new consciousness regarding the Jew and the "other" as central to our core being. It will draw from examples in the field and promises to inspire and uplift.

Peter's participation in LimmudFest NY was made possible with generous support from The Covenant Foundation.
