We begin our Mini-Series where the violence in May all started - Jerusalem. We speak with Jerusalem activists Nivene Sandouka and Suf Patishi about what it's actually like on the ground, what they think led to the interethnic violence in May, and what’s next. The show is hosted by Sally Abed and Dina Kraft. We are powered by the New Israel Fund and The Alliance for Middle East Peace. Learn more about our show at Groundworkpodcast.com
