Palestinian-Jewish Living Room Dialogue

Many Jews and Arabs feel like they are mortal enemies, with no hope of understanding one another and finding peace. But a growing number of Jews and Palestinians here in the U.S. are actually having a dialogue.
Sixteen years ago, Len Traubman started the Jewish-Palestinian Dialogue right in his living room. Every month, San Francisco Bay Area Jews and Palestinians come to meet, have coffee, and listen to one another. Palestinian Elias Botto started coming ten years ago, and he’s been friends with Traubman ever since.
I visited with the two men in the Traubman living room to see how their dialogue works.
