Towards a Quaker response to Israel and Palestine
£95.00 – £165.00
Should Friends do more to promote reconciliation in Israel-Palestine? In this course we will explore together the roots of the conflict. and the role of cross-border initiatives such as the Parents’ Circle Families Forum. We will ask what other steps might be acceptable to many Palestinians and Israelis. Among Quaker peacemakers some see their chief role as “prophets”, others as “reconcilers”. Both can contribute to this enquiry.
Please note that the correct dates for this course are: Monday 13 – Wednesday 15 May 2019.
