A Better Future for Israelis & Palestinians: A 4-part Series


About This Event

This 4-part series will provide opportunities for us as Jews, Muslims and Christians to consider many perspectives and narratives from which to think about the current situation in Israel and Palestine. We hope that our understanding of the forces that created the situation will deepen, that we will be able to open our hearts and minds to each other, acknowledge the past and current injustices of the situation in Israel and Palestine and become part of the solution as advocates for peace and justice in the region.\ \ Oct. 6th - Can We Talk/Listen?
