Painful Hope Dialogue



How do Palestinians and Israelis move beyond the cycle of violence that engulfs them?

Thursday, November 30 • 7:00pm • MJCC Belz Social Hall

Rabbi Hanan Schlesinger, an Israeli settler who has become an advocate for coexistence, along with Antwan Saca, a Palestinian Christian and non-violent peace activist, will speak about Roots, a Palestine-Israeli grassroots initiative fostering understanding, non-violence, and transformation through facilitating gatherings and deep conversations between Palestinians and Israelis living in the West Bank.

They will share their riveting and intertwining personal stories. They come with no ready peace plans in hand, but with a shared conviction that human understanding and trust are the prerequisites for lasting justice, freedom and peace on the tiny sliver of land that they both call home. Q & A to follow.

Made available at no charge through the MJCC’s Center for Jewish Living & Learning.
