Conflict, Crisis, and Communication: A Conversation with Rabbi Dr. Daniel Roth

Rabbi Tully Harcsztark and Daniel Roth
December 7, 2023

This podcast is part of a series of episodes devoted to important conversations we are having at Machon Siach in the aftermath of the October 7th Hamas Terror attacks on Israel, the subsequent military campaign in Gaza, and the impact of the war on Am Yisrael around the world.

This episode features an eye-opening discussion between Rabbi Tully Harcsztark and Rabbi Dr. Daniel Roth- the director of Mosaica, an Israeli NGO focusing on insider religious mediation.

What exactly does the work of insider religious mediation look like during a war?

Is there ongoing dialogue between religious leaders in Muslim and Jewish communities in the Middle East at this terrible time?

What should we as high school educators be teaching our students about the role of religion in this seemingly intractable conflict?

Rabbi Dr. Daniel Roth is the director of Mosaica, an Israeli NGO advancing community mediation and dialogue in Israel. Much of Roth’s work focuses on the network of insider religious mediators who help prevent, mitigate, and mediate crisis situations throughout Israel, the Middle East, and beyond. Roth also works to connect religious leaders to the roughly 90 community mediation and dialogue centers and initiatives throughout Israel, including 30 in the Arab sector and 16 in mixed Jewish-Arab cities and areas, which Mosaica professionally supports through a tender of the Ministry of Welfare and Social Affairs called the Gishurim Project.
