Part 3 of a Three-Part Zoom Seminar Series
Speaker: Dr. Rachel Fish – Executive Director of the Foundation to Combat anti-Semitism
Explores if and how both Israel and the Palestinians can find a formula that allows for a two-state solution. It will also examine if another paradigm for a peaceful resolution exists.
Dr. Rachel Fish is founding Executive Director of the Foundation to Combat anti-Semitism, established to catalyze dynamic new solutions to stop the age-old hatred advanced by those who seek the elimination of Judaism, the Jewish people and the Jewish State. Fish was most recently Senior Advisor and Resident Scholar of Jewish/Israel Philanthropy at the Paul E. Singer Foundation in New York City. Fish was also the Executive Director of the Schusterman Center for Israel Studies at Brandeis University. She holds a PhD in Near Eastern and Judaic Studies from Brandeis University. Her dissertation, “Configurations of Bi-nationalism: The Transformation of Bi-nationalism in Palestine/Israel 1920’s-Present,” examines the history of the idea of bi-nationalism and alternative visions for constructing the State of Israel. She has taught at Brandeis, Harvard and UMASS Amherst. She is co-editor, with Ilan Troen, of the book Essential Israel: Essays for the Twenty-First Century.
This is the third of three Zoom seminars exploring the future of an Israeli presence in the West Bank. These seminars explore what steps can be taken in the absence of a peace process to shrink the conflict and improve the lives of Israelis and Palestinians in the West Bank, and the impact of future decisions about its status.
