OUR TEARS ARE THE SAME COLOR: A DIALOGUE MEETING WITH BEREAVED PALESTINIAN & ISRAELI PARENTS
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 16
5:00PM AT TOURO SYNAGOGUE
Our Touro community has the unique opportunity to host a delegation from The Parents’ Circle – Families Forum, a joint Israeli-Palestinian organization made up of more than 600 bereaved families. Their common bond is that they have lost a close family member to the conflict. But instead of choosing revenge, they have chosen a path of reconciliation.
Before the Shabbat that formally begins our High Holiday season, all are invited to attend a Dialogue Meeting in which an Israeli mother and a Palestinian mother will share their stories and how they came to the work of peace-making. As a space for dialogue and learning, Touro Synagogue is honored to offer this sacred hour.
