It happens all the time these days: someone makes an offensive comment, you read an annoying op-ed in the newspaper, hear a one-sided report on the radio.  Or there is an incident at your school, your alma mater or even in another country halfway around the world.  You feel angry, paralyzed or afraid, and you either try to ignore the situation or sometimes react with ineffective and regrettable responses.  
At a time when we are experiencing a national breakdown in civility, diplomacy skills are required.  This workshop will use case studies to develop your Jewish advocacy skills to feel more empowered and respond graciously and strategically.  We'll consider proactive efforts to build bridges of understanding while taking a stand to promote the welfare of the Jewish people.
