One Palestinian’s fight against BDS

On-Demand Recording

Professor Mohammed Dajani Daoudi recently attended an Arab conference, with the purpose of uniting in the fight against BDS. Joined by nearly 30 other Arab leaders, Professor Dajani was the only Palestinian in attendance. Our SVP of Education, Dr. Noam Weissman will moderate a conversation with the professor exploring:
  • Why Professor Dajani chose to attend this conference and what he was seeking to accomplish
  • How empathy and compassion can be used as tools to help solve the Arab-Israeli conflict
  • Professor Dajani’s perspective on what Jewish educators should know about his personal experience as a Palestinian leader and academic
