Anger, aggression and verbal abuse between Jews has broken out. Keith Kahn-Harris explores the causes of the conflicts and describes his own efforts at conflict resolutionAnalysing the various groupings - left, right, secular and religious, pro and anti-Zionist - in Britain and the USA, he looks at the history of civility in society and examines the different methods used by international organisations and groups involved in developing dialogue within Jewish communities.He describes, how using these techniques and with expert help, he brought together more than seventy prominent diverse British Jews for a series of encounters.

He concludes that dialogue and civility is possible. But with no change in behaviour there will be serious consequences for the Jewish communities of the world.A masterful and thoughtful analysis of the various existing positions of Jews and Israel advocates on Israel.
