An activist’s call to repair the world, grounded in Jewish ethical tradition and community, Hope Into Practice brings to life an irresistible blend of women’s healing stories, history, and a fair-minded perspective on Israel-Palestine – inviting us to face fears but not act on them, and to use privilege to shift power.
