Healing Israel/Palestine M. Awad, J. Grater, R. Thomas

How can we bring spiritual wisdom and harness the best of the religious traditions in healing the struggle between Israelis and Palestinians? How can we speak to our elected officials in the most effective way to get them involved in the process of ending the Occupation of the West Bank and Gaza and helping to create a Palestinian state living in peace with Israel, and do that in a way that provides security to the Israeli people and a sense of respect and dignity to the Palestinian people? We will be training people for actual hands-on work with Congressional and other elected officials and media.
