    ArticleReflections on Polarization and Insight

    TE’A is currently developing its third project, The America Project, in which we are creatively and constructively engaging the political and cultural polarization of the United States.

    ArticleOn Red Lines and Open Tables

    When it comes to American foreign policy, we continue to get ourselves into no-win situations. The latest swamp is the Syrian Civil War and the appropriate (?) ethical (?) strategic (?) role the US should play as a result of seemingly incontrovertible evidence that the Assad regime has used chemical weapons against the Syrian people,... more...

    ArticleEstablish Justice

    Where were you 50 years ago?  I was an 18 year-old sitting in my sister’s living room in El Paso, Texas watching the March on Washington on her big black and white TV. Two other sisters were in Washington at the March and we were hoping to see them in the crowd. We could feel the electricity in the air, even though we were far... more...

    ArticleThe Facebook Factor

    Every morning and evening I take my ritual commuter subway ride. At the end of nearly every train journey I find that at some point I've done two things (besides chastise myself for forgetting hand sanitizer again):  1) swept the car with my eyes, searching for a sign of a fellow veteran – inked skin that tells our story,... more...

    ArticleIntersections Has Moved

    Intersections has moved. While it’s true that we are always refining and refocusing our work intellectually and spiritually, this time we have physically moved. After almost six years in our “home” at 274 Fifth Avenue, we have a bright, new location: 145 W. 28th Street, 11 th Floor, New York, NY 10001. It was easy to... more...

    ArticleHow We Have Forgotten The People of the Book

    The title of this reflection may interest some; in others, it may stir curiosity as to who or what comprises “The People of the Book.” But for those who know – I hope it can serve as a reminder of how truly similar Muslims, Jews and Christians are in the mutual bond of their respective Abrahamic faiths. My aim,... more...

    ArticleThe Actual Dance

    Some issues we address at Intersections are captured on front pages: the reintegration of US veterans into civilian life; the relationship between the US and Pakistan; full inclusion for LGBT persons; polarization in American society by race, religion, economic inequality. Other issues lie behind the headlines, and linger without... more...

    ArticleThe Magic of Red, White & Blue

    FOMO- Fear of Missing Out. Like many people, when I fall ill I usually contract FOMO in conjunction with whatever illness I might have. This week was no exception. I was ill and there was so much to do: meetings, ongoing preparations for the Intersections office move, development for upcoming Dialogue events, and plans to go running with... more...

    ArticleA Tale of Two Interns: At the Synagogue

    Intersections kindly arranged for Shanzae and me to take part in a guided visit by one of our UPIC representatives, Rabbi Ari Hart (who, due to the impending birth of his child, mozaltov, was unable to attend our conference in Pakistan this year). Rabbi Hart very kindly offered to not only show us around his recently rejuvenated... more...

    ArticleShoot Day - The RVIP Police Training Video Comes...

    I've spent the past two months writing and co-producing a training video that will be used to introduce police officers (particularly from the police departments of Memphis, TN and Lowell, MA) to the Insight approach to conflict resolution and its potential for effectiveness when used in law enforcement. Knowing that there are a lot... more...
