Join us as we come together for a powerful conversation with May Pundak and Dr. Rula Hardal, the inspirational Israeli and Palestinian co-executive directors of the rapidly growing “A Land for All” peace movement. At this time of grief, anger, pain, and despair, May and Rula will share their vision and discuss the compelling and practical solutions they offer for the thorniest sticking points in the Israel-Palestine conflict.
A Land for All brings together, under one roof, Israelis and Palestinians who recognize that two peoples share a deep connection to the exact same homeland, and that only a partnership-based approach can create a better future for all. Their movement’s creative “two states in one homeland” plan has been featured recently on CNN, in the New York Times, and elsewhere.
This event is co-sponsored by New Israel Fund and American Friends of A Land for All.
Dr. Rula Hardal is a research fellow at the Shalom Hartman Institute in Jerusalem, the Jerusalem Van Leer Institute, and the Forum for Regional Thinking. She has taught political science and social work at Al-Quds University in East Jerusalem, the Arab American University in Ramallah, University of Osaka in Japan, and University of Lisbon in Portugal. Dr. Hardal is an activist in several initiatives to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and a board member of Adalah – the Legal Center for Arab Minority Rights in Israel, based in Haifa. She also serves as a political commentator on local and international television channels.
A feminist lawyer, activist and social entrepreneur, May Pundak has worked at the New Israel Fund, directed the Polyphony Foundation, helped establish a legal team to support political struggles in East Jerusalem, and co-founded an educational dialogue group program for Jewish and Palestinian teenagers in West and East Jerusalem.

She holds a degree in public and international law, with an emphasis on human rights, from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
