We hosted our third Peace Café today - a BIG success.
Many doubted that Israelis and Palestinians (and Internationals) can meet in time of war. Today we showed we can, and now is time for peace.
The Associated Press and Reuters sent a video crew who filmed our peacemakers sharing themselves and their commitment to peace.
We feel fortunate for this coverage and hope that AP and Reuters will show our Peace Café to the world. In listening circles and tables, we discussed Gaza, how we can help, and what we can do to develop leaders for peace.
We met, we cried, we laughed, we ate lunch together: pitas, humus and falafel... Our conversations were charged, emotional and respectful. At this sensitive time, we showed we care and love one another.
Thank you to Hiba Hamzeh, for organizing today’s event, and to Rahel, Moad, Neri, Anas and Costa for helping. We honor all the peacemakers who overcame roadblocks, checkpoints and fears. You made our Peace Café a success!
