Melitz’s “Engaging Disengagement is an interactive 90-minute to 2 hour program that gives participants a deep understanding of what the people of Israel are experiencing through the disengagement. Shown discussing the program are (from left): Alan Respler, executive director of the Jewish Community Relations Council of Southern New Jersey; Henry Maurer, president of JCRC; and Alexandra Benjamin, educational consultant from Melitz, who facilitated the program.
The program uses an interactive role-playing format. The Jewish Community Relations Council of Southern New Jersey, the human relations and public policy arm of the Jewish Federation of Southern New Jersey, sponsored a presentation of “Engaging Disengagement” at the Cherry Hill Public Library on Sunday, September 25, 2005. This program features a recording of that interactive dialogue, introductory interviews with JCRC officers David Shevrin and Gloria Fischel-Gilbert, and comments from Alexandra Benjamin, the Melitz educational consultant who facilitated the dialogue.
