We are blessed and privileged to have time with Professor Hanoch Ben Pazi of Bar Ilan University who spent time in South Africa researching Post Apartheid, South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
The special benefit of this work is its extreme relevance to the race-related challenges that have erupted and persist in the United States, and now continue worldwide. There is so much to learn from this research, both to understand our current moment, and to understand our respective personal obligations in this time.
