Tuesday, Sept 13, 2016, 3:30-5 p.m.

Cardinal Foley Center St. Joseph’s University

Antwan Saca, a Palestinian Christian peace activist, and Rabbi Hanan Schlesinger, an Israeli settler who has become an advocate for coexistence, speak on behalf of Judur/Shorashim/Roots, a Palestinian-Israeli grassroots initiative fostering understanding, nonviolence and transformation. Their organization facilitates unmediated get-togethers and deep conversations between Palestinians and Israelis living in the West Bank.

Join our distinguished speakers as they tell their personal, intertwining stories. They come with no ready peace plans in hand, but with the conviction that human understanding and trust are the prerequisites for lasting justice, freedom and peace on the tiny sliver of land that they both call home.
