  1. How might we change the discourse on challenging and charged Jewish conversations to reflect that complex issues cannot be defined simply in dichotomous, “win-lose” ways? How might we approach a discussion of how Israel can recognize such complexity?

  3. Is there a relationship between uncertainty and tolerance? If so, what is it? What would be the dangers of that relationship?
