While waiting for Palestinian farmers to safely arrive at their lands in the Shilo Valley on April 21st 2015, Rabbi Arik Ascherman was passed by a settler in a car who identified him, turned around, and began this conversation.

That visit took place a week before this recording.
Again and again, Rabbi Ascherman shows his interest in having open, respectful dialogue with settlers and others who disagree or are concerned by the work of RHR.
