  • Painful Hope

    Temple Israel, 477 Longwood Avenue, Boston, MA 02215
    Sunday, June 14, 2015 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

    at Temple Israel, 477 Longwood Avenue, Boston, MA 02215

    with Ali Abu Awwad and Rabbi Hanan Schlesinger

    How do we move beyond the cycle of violence that engulfs Israelis and Palestinians? The Roots project is a new effort, based in the Gush Etzion area of the West Bank, to bring together Israelis and Palestinians who, despite living next to each other, are separated by walls of fear - not just fear of each other, but even of the price of peace. We are honored and excited to welcome to Boston two of the leaders of Roots, Ali Abu Awwad (a long time Palestinian peace activist) and Hanan Schlesinger (an Orthodox rabbi who lives in a West Bank settlement), who will present their gut-wrenching personal narratives that brought them to discover the humanity and the legitimacy of the ‘other’, and will discuss how they are working to move their communities past suspicion, fear, and violence, and towards a positive solution of the conflict. They come with no ready peace plans in hand, but only with the conviction that human understanding and trust will be the prerequisites for lasting justice, freedom and peace on that tiny sliver of land that they both call home.

    RSVP to Sue Misselbeck at susanm [at] tisrael.org or 617-566-3960 x160.

    Reduced rate parking is available next to Temple Israel at $7.00 for the evening in the 375 Longwood Avenue
    garage. Temple Israel is one block from the MBTA Green ‘D’ Line Longwood Station.

    Co-sponsored by Temple Israel of Boston, Congregation Dorshei Tzedek, Temple Israel of Natick, Hillel B’nai Torah, Temple Shalom of Newton, Temple Isaiah, and Temple Beth Zion.

    As you may recall, Ali Abu Awwad spoke at CDT in October, 2014.
