In July, the journalist and political commentator Peter Beinart published an essay in Jewish Currents, where the long-time liberal Zionist explained why he no longer believes in a Jewish state (an abridged version appeared in the New York Times). Beinart’s essay produced a lively, and at times acrimonious, debate about Israel as a Jewish and democratic state, and the two- vs. one-state solutions. In this conversation, Beinart will address questions from the audience about his involved position and the future of Israel.
