You are invited to a warm human meeting of listening, getting to know each other and trust building. This is the 6th meeting organized by CEF.
The previous meetings were a great success and allowed participants to open up to themselves and each other, and to the complexity of the situation in our region. People who participated in previous meetings said:
" It is a great opportunity to meet the other
side and see that they are not as horrible
as we thought and actually they are as
human as us"
In addition to Palestinians and Israelis there are also internationals that take an important role in the meetings. These people come from many places around the world to learn, to support and to participate in the trust building process. Internationals who participated in the previous meetings said:

Direction to Everest Hotel from Jerusalem
Everest Hotel is close to the gate of the Har-Gilo settlement.
To get there from Jerusalem: go to Gilo neighborhood, to the direction of Gush-Etsion, take the tunnels road until you reach the El-Hader check-point. Everyone who comes from Jerusalem passes freely on this direction.
You want to take the first turn Immediately after the checkpoint to the left to Beit-Jala, BUT – they canceled the turn – So, you have to go forward until you can make a U-turn and then go back just before the check-point and turn right to Beit-Jala. Go up the road until you reach a junction. Go straight and up the hill until you see Everest Hotel on your left. It is a safe and easy ride – not as complicated as it may sound here.
