Discussing ‘A Palestinian And Jewish Theology Of Liberation’

The Trump Administration announced in December that the U.S. now recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and plans to move its embassy there from Tel Aviv. The move has been widely criticized.

Reverend Naim Ateek, a Palestinian Anglican priest, stops by to discuss his idea of a just peace and reconciliation. We’ll also talk with Brant Rosen, Midwest regional director of American Friends Service Committee and founding rabbi of the newly-formed congregation, Tzedek Chicago.

GUESTS:

Rev. Naim Ateek, founder of the Sabeel Ecumenical Liberation Theology Center in Jerusalem and author of A Palestinian Theology of Liberation

Brant Rosen, author of Wrestling in the Daylight: A Rabbi’s Path to Palestinian Solidarity
