The Other Peace Process

These two lectures present an alternative vision of the Israeli-Palestinian peace process - one based not on peace treaties or other political mechanisms, but rather on inter-religious dialogue and interaction. Their presentations will draw both on scholarly perspectives and personal experiences, which include working for many years in Israel connecting religious leaders, educators, women, youth and young adults through educational programs. No charge.
