One of the best parts of our activities to promote tolerance in Jerusalem is seeing more and more collaborations to reach a common goal…
What a better way to round out a week of learning new communications skills to resolve conflict, than to practice them in Zion Square?
This past Thursday, February 23, Speaking in the Square teamed with the Yerushalmim Movement and the the Jewish Week of Constructive Conflict, which is operated by the Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies together with Mosaica: The Center for Conflict Resolution by Agreement.
The event included discussion circles, which were moderated by a group of Haredim who lead cultural activities. The circle included some 60 secular, Haredi and everyone in between, discussing the hot topics of the day, such as Shabbat in Jerusalem, and more.
Spoken word, and Jerusalem’s fantastic diverse residents, who were happy to participate. All together, hundreds of people participated in the evening.
Here’s Speaking in the Square’s Facebook post (in Hebrew), describing the event:
