SHORASHIM-JUDUR-ROOTS: A PALESTINIAN/ISRAELI INITIATIVE FOR UNDERSTANDING, NONVIOLENCE, AND TRANSFORMATION

Thursday, November 1. Patron’s dinner at 6:30 pm, Community lecture at 8 pm

As part the annual Stanley Kahn Memorial lecture, SPS will present a compelling dialogue between Rabbi Hanan Schlesinger an Orthodox rabbi who is a passionate Zionist Settler and Shadi Abu Awwad, the grandson, son, and nephew of Palestinians that were at the helm of the First Intifada.

Join them as they tell their personal stories and their efforts to build a better future for their peoples. They come with no ready peace plan in hand but only with the conviction that human understanding and trust will be the pre-requisites for lasting justice, freedom, and peace on that tiny sliver of land that they both call home.
