A House Divided: Navigating Conflict
in a Polarized Age

At a time when humanity needs to be building bridges to address shared challenges and opportunities, our polarized society seems like “a house divided,” where civility, trust, and unity feel uncommon. Conflict at home and abroad is opening old wounds and threatening to create new ones. This year we will explore these challenges through the lens of history, contemporary values, and Jewish wisdom that embraces open dialogue as a pathway to understanding, partnership, and even peace.
