Federation and JCC present 'Powered by Courage' webinar series


November 27, 2020

Last year Jewish Federation CEO Keith Dvorchik participated in the Encounter program in Israel. Encounter works to help Jewish leaders understand the diverse Palestinian narrative.

“It was a fascinating experience that was hopeful, depressing, and aggravating at the same time,” Dvorchik said in the Fed Friday newsletter. This November he was to return as a facilitator for an Encounter trip before COVID-19 changed the world. 

Since Dvorchik can’t go to Israel for the experience, Encounter is bringing some of the speakers to Central Florida free of charge. The Federation and The Roth Family JCC are sponsoring the “Powered by Courage” webinar series. Speakers, including Sami Awad, Abu Ibrahim, Fadia and Fatima Al Wahsh, Lama Abuarquob, Sam Bahour, Sulaiman Khatib, and Osama Elewat will discuss the varying Palestinian narrative. 

“Some will inspire. Some will frustrate. Some will depress. All are important to hear and many of them I got to meet,” said Dvorchik. Feel free to email me if you have questions about any of them. 

To see the topics, learn about the speakers, and to register, please visit https://www.poweredbycourage.org. The website also shows the dates and times of topic discussions.

If you have questions for Dvorchik, please email him at kdvorchik@jfgo.org.

Neither the Federation nor The Roth Family JCC endorse the positions by any of these speakers.
