Eyal Rabinovitch is the founding director of Resetting the Table: Open Conversations on Israel, an initiative of the JCPA designed to open conversation across differences in Jewish spaces where speaking about Israel is currently avoided or volatile.
A mediator, facilitator, coach and trainer, Eyal supports individuals and communities to defuse tension, communicate directly and build new lines of collaboration and problem-solving. He co-developed a unique "Speaking across Conflict" framework through which he has trained dozens of corporate and nonprofit professionals, philanthropists and educators. He has advised numerous national nonprofits on methods, language and theory for engaging diverse stakeholders in dialogue on polarized issues, such as abortion and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Two of Eyal's other current projects include designing a conflict prevention, management, and reconciliation program for a state-wide reproductive health coalition, and using theater to convene community dialogue on elder abuse and social isolation in San Mateo County, CA.
A published author on dialogue and deliberation, Eyal has a doctorate in sociology from UCLA and has taught courses integrating conflict resolution theory and practice as an Assistant Professor at Wesleyan University and Baruch College.
