Course Details

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.

Alwyn Knight has worked in Hebron as a member of the Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme, and as a member of Christian Peacemaker Teams.

John Lynes has worked in Palestine as a QPSW observer, as an Ecumenical Accompanier, and with the Christian Peacemaker Team in Hebron.

Sue Beardon has served as an Ecumenical Accompanier, and is a signatory of Jews for Justice for Palestinians. Sue recently returned to the West Bank with the Center for Jewish Nonviolence where Jews and Palestinians campaigned together to protect Palestinian land which it is hoped will be used to open a cinema in Hebron.
