Jerusalem Women Speak: Three Women, Three Faiths, One Shared Vision

Lev Plaves ’10 sends in some info about a really interesting event later today (Thursday) about the prospect of peace in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict:

Do you know what it means to live in Palestine and Israel? Do you know what it takes to build peace — after years of war, occupation and conflict? Three women — a Palestinian Christian, an Israeli Jew, and a Palestinian Muslim — living the realities of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, will answer these questions and share their experiences and their hopes for a just peace. The women — educators, film makers, activists — are engaged in their own way to resolve the conflict and chart a brighter future for their region. Each lives the hardships of conflict and the tragedy of occupation in unique ways; each has witnessed decades of Israeli-Palestinian violence and the intermittent attempts to rekindle peace talks. Together they have made a commitment to address American audiences about their work for a peaceful future and what must be done to improve today’s deteriorating situation.
