A local Palestine-Israeli initiative for Understanding, Non-violence and Transformation, 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/Shorashimg/Roots, a Palestine-Israeli grassroots initiative fostering understanding, non-violence 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 conviction that human understanding and trust are the prereqisites for lasting justice, freedom and peace on the tiny sliver of land that they both call home.
