Jeremy Ben-Ami – President, J Street

Jeremy Ben-Ami - President, J Street: “We’ve raised our kids to give to the poor, to help the hungry, to stand up for the oppressed, to rally around everybody else who is suffering in the world. So, they are going to see the Palestinian people and they’re going to say why are they suffering? And we have to let them ask that question."

“We’ve raised our kids to give to the poor, to help the hungry, to stand up for the oppressed, to rally around everybody else who is suffering in the world. So, they are going to see the Palestinian people and they’re going to say why are they suffering? And we have to let them ask that question. And we have to help them understand the context, and the history, and try to find their way… and try to introduce them in a way that allows them to apply their values to the issues rather than have to check them at the door.”

Between Two Worlds the Movie

Critics Say...

“The film’s graceful, seamless, thoroughly engaging blend of family and communal history is sure to stimulate thousands of provocative conversations about the challenges of Jewish identity in the post-Holocaust era.”
-Letty Cottin Pogrebin, author and founding Editor, Ms. Magazine
