Painful Hope: An Israeli Settler & Palestinian Activist in Dialogue

Wednesday, November 20, 2019 22 Cheshvan 5780

7:00 PM - 9:30 PM
Hill Havurah and Mt. Moriah Baptist Church are co-sponsoring this very special event at Mt. Moriah (1636 East Capitol Street, NE). We hope you can join us!
How do Palestinians and Israelis move beyond the cycle of violence that engulfs them? Hanan Schlesinger, an Orthodox rabbi and passionate Zionist settler, and Palestinian Shadi Abu Awwad, the architect and coordinator of the Roots youth movement, share their personal stories and how they are working together to build a better future for their peoples through ROOTS/SHORASHIM/JUDUR.
Roots is a Palestinian-Israeli grassroots initiative fostering understanding, non-violence and transformation. This organization facilitates unmediated get-togethers and deep conversations between Palestinians and Israelis living in the West Bank. Our speakers come with no peace plans in place, but with a strong conviction that human understanding and trust are the prerequisites for lasting justice, freedom and peace on the tiny sliver of land they both call home.
All are welcome. No registration is required.
Following this event, this coming winter, Hill Havurah and Mount Moriah will engage in interfaith text study together on the Holy Land and the conflict, inspired by what we've heard from this event, and using materials from Interfaith Partners for Peace. Please stay tuned for more information on those sessions, and reserve the Wednesday evenings of January 8, January 22, and February 5.
