Understanding. Transforming. An evening with Roots
Tue, Dec 13, 2022 • 7:00 PM
Hear from the people behind the nonviolence initiative between Israelis and Palestinians. Roots is a grassroots movement building and expanding their network of five local associations of Israelis and Palestinians who are addressing injustice by providing reactive support after acts of violence, advocating against separation, violence, and inequality, and creating openings between religious and ideological camps that were previously seen as the obstacles to peace.
Join the JCC Manhattan for an intimate conversation with Noor A’wad, a Palestinian tour guide from Bethlehem, and Rabbi Hanan Schlesinger, director of international relations for Roots/Judur/Shorashim, an Orthodox rabbi and teacher, and a passionate Zionist settler who has founded Faiths in Conversation, a framework for Jewish-Christian -Muslim theological dialogue.
