Towards a Just and Sustainable Future for Israel/Palestine

Engage in the Conversation

On Sunday, May 22nd, we will come together as a broad community to listen to one another. We will first hear from our partners in Palestine and Israel – two courageous people who have overcome their mistrust, frustration, and hatred and decided to work together. They are part of the NGO – Combatants for Peace, that works diligently and non-violently for peace and reconciliation in their shared homeland.

Subsequently, the audience will break into listening circles where each person will have an equal opportunity to share their thoughts and feelings. We invite you to be ready to listen with an open mind, to be challenged in your understanding, and to be transformed by what you hear. One of our objectives is to grow the seeds of compassion and understanding that reside in each of us. Then, we will reunite to conclude our event.
