NOTES

Having been raised in America by two Hebrew-speaking parents on the writings of Amos Oz, the Shir LaShalom ("A Song for Peace"), and on the legacy of pro-peace Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, I deferred my acceptance to Cornell University in 2015 to explore the barriers to Israeli-Palestinian peace at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

EDITORIAL

In the enduring absence of direct negotiations (the "peace process"), peacebuilding in our context is in need of serious reevaluation. Merely bringing Israelis and Palestinians together cannot be the full extent of our tactics and strategies.

FIELD

Where entrepreneurship and technology intersect, there is an oft-obscure space that presents opportunities for peacebuilding. In Israel-Palestine, this space is harnessed by organizations that actively bring together Israelis and Palestinians in pursuit of a peace that relies on conditions beyond the conventional foundations of mutual understanding and co-existence.

FIELD

Through passing MEPPA into law, you have demonstrated an understanding that peace between the Israelis and Palestinians must be built strategically, between the people themselves who are at war with one another, living right next to each other.

FIELD

Activities falling into the category of 'peacebuilding', especially in the protracted and ever-changing context of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, are increasingly difficult to categorize. While the focus of peacebuilding before the Oslo Accords revolved around intergroup dialogue and education, the events that occurred since then have pushed peacebuilders to reconsider their means.

NOTES

In May of 2021, at the end of my junior year in college, I published a book titled Closing the Gap: Sustainable Infrastructure to Save the World. Writing this book was a year's journey of learning about one of our world's foremost challenges: the global infrastructure gap.
