I am an Israeli orthodox Jew. I believe that we all have a responsibility to be courageous and responsible enough to engage each other in respectful dialogue with a view towards finding common ground, in more ways than one !
Why I want peace:
Peace is the ultimate blessing for Israel for the region and for the planet
Interests and activities:
I give lectures in Jewish thought (I am an orthodox Rabbi)
I am 49 years old, divorced with four boys, all living in Israel.
I work as a computer software consultant in Israel.
Something you didn't know about me:
I study Islam and enjoy memorizing verses in Arabic
I mean what is generally meant by generalisin,g I think: assuming that a certain group of people share the political ideas - that is in this site - elsewhere it might mean attributing a bahavioural pattern to a religious, ethnic or whatever self identifying group of people. Haven't you ever generalised about other groups/types/nationalities/religious groups? I think it is a very common human failing - or maybe I'm generalising too much.
Salam, Ari. I like that you study Islam and enjoy memorizing verses in Arabic. That's a cool profile. Is the person in the picture with you your son? I used to tutor students with special educational needs at a school in Amman for almost two years.
