NCDD member and director of the Jewish Dialogue Group, Mitch Chanin, contacted us with news of an excellent opportunity. His organization is seeking interns to help them create a new Guidebook for Deliberation about the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict. Interns will have the opportunity to assist with a number of research and writing tasks. Here’s a little more about this group and the guidebook:
The Jewish Dialogue Group (www.jewishdialogue.org) is a non-partisan, grassroots organization that works to foster constructive dialogue within Jewish communities about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and other difficult issues. We lead structured dialogue programs in synagogues, colleges, and other venues and also train dialogue facilitators, create publications that empower people to lead dialogue programs of their own, and provide advice to people who are engaged in dialogue work. We seek to make these services and resources available to all who need them.
In early 2011, we will publish a new guidebook for deliberation. Jews across the U.S. will use the guide to conduct workshops in which participants systematically explore how they can respond to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in ways that are as ethical and effective as possible, in a supportive, non-adversarial environment.
