Israeli-Palestinian Peace Building

With today’s polarized politics and relentless violence and deepening despair across the Middle East, it’s often easy to lose the hope for a more just, civil, and peaceful future. Now more than ever, we need creative thinking and tangible action to build a positive tomorrow. Speakers will share what they’ve done to work with Israel and Palestinian partners, to build peace between Israelis and Palestinians along with their American partners. Then we’ll open up the discussion to our delegates. What have your experiences been? How do you work with your partners, and what have been your challenges and successes? Speakers: Lior Frankiensztajn, Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts-Schori, and Father Josh Thomas
