Tired of arguing over political ideologies? In this workshop, you can take a break from being ‘right’ and find out ways to move through diverse and conflicting perspectives in a productive and potentially enjoyable way. Take a weekend to linger in uncertainty rather than act in ways you already know. The Betzavta Method, designed to facilitate dialogue with youth in Israel-Palestine, is a method to relate the principles of democracy to everyday decision-making. The principles and concepts behind democracy—equality, freedom, majorities, minorities—are applied in the group context, allowing the individual to reflect on their role in a group.
