While eyes are on Gaza, Rabbi Arik Ascherman invites us to turn our gaze toward West Bank Palestinians, drawing poignant parallels to the experiences of Japanese Americans post-Pearl Harbor. With a distinguished career leading Rabbis For Human Rights for 21 years and founding Torat Tzedek (Torah of Justice), Rabbi Ascherman has been a tireless advocate for the rights of Israelis living in poverty and Palestinians farmers and shepherds alike. Join us as Rabbi Ascherman illuminates the echoes of history and the urgent call for justice in the West Bank, offering insights and inspiration for faith-based human rights advocacy in today’s world.
