    2. Rabbi Arik Ascherman, President and Senior Rabbi of the group, Rabbis for Human Rights, talks about the recent upsurge of violence in Jerusalem, explaining the context for rising tensions around the city’s religious sites, holy to Judaism, Islam and Christianity — and his group’s work for justice in Israel and the Occupied Territories.
    3. Rev.

    4.
