Hagit Ofran is one of the world's leading experts on West Bank settlements. In a conversation at her Jerusalem home, she analyzes current trends in West Bank settlement planning and construction, as well as Israeli government actions to "legalize" illegal outposts and to allow the construction of new illegal outposts.

This episode's guest is Jeremy Ben Ami, the founder and president of J Street. Jeremy recently published an article in the New Republic headlined Don’t Give Up: Why Liberal Jews Must Not Abandon the Fight for Israel’s Future. His is one of several articles in the current edition of the New Republic, devoted to the relationship today between American Jews and Israel.
On these Days of Awe between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur, we reflected and took stock of where our pro-Israel pro-peace movement stands and where we wish to go.

This episode features a conversation with Amos Guiora, a professor at the University of Utah’s S. J. Quinney College of Law.
Amos has written a book about the crime and the sin of complicity. I thought this would be a good time to reflect on complicity, on by-standing.
This episode was recorded a couple of days before Rosh Hashana, the Jewish new year, a time when we reflect on the year that passed and commit or resolve to do better next year. Earlier today, I put Rosh Hashana greeting cards on the desks of my colleagues here at APN, in which I resolved to be more engaged this coming year, more engaged with the cause that we work to advance: Israeli-Palestinian peace.
On Rosh Hashana, I implore you too, my listeners, to become more engaged – engaged politically and engaged with APN. Sign up to receive our materials, engage with our action alerts, read our articles and analyses, and please support us with a donation.
