The Citizens' Accord Forum

Invites you to

A Sukka (tabernacle) of peace and reconciliation, accord and dialogue
For all ages,
all religious denominations,
all political views,
For all the residents of Akko - Arabs and Jews
And for everyone who understands that we must switch tracks
That we must not go down the road of violent conflict

The Sukka will be open its door today, on the eve of the holyday, at the Rabin Square in the Old City of Akko, and will remain open throughout Sukkot.

In the Sukka:

Dialogue encounters between Jewish and Arab youth, organized by the Kibbutz Movement and Hashomer Hatzair youth movement.

Study encounters for Jewish, Moslem and Christian religious leaders, organized by the Citizens' Accord Movement and led by Sheikh Abdallah Nimer Darwish and Rabbi Michael Melchior.

Art, culture and music events initiated and organized by the Coexistence Network - an initiative of the Abraham Fund and the Citizens' Accord Forum.

Very positive sign...
We hear about bad news so fast, it brings hope to see that there are some activities to face the hate and anger and to stop the tension.
Thanks for posting this Hiba. I am glad someone is doing something positive with what is going on in Akko.
Thanks for posting :-)
This is a welcome move and very appropriate. Let us hope and pray that it will succeed.I think that it is vital that the atmosphere between the two peoples improve and this could be the beginning. Inshallah!
I agree with Hiba; Let's promote hope and peace :-)

Hi all,
I suggest anybody who can, Jews and Muslems, Israelies and Arabs, please come to Acco, to sit in the peace tent (peace cafe') to help and practice peace instead of talk about it.
I realy feel that we have a live oppertunity to practice peace making. Let's use it!!!!
Hope to see you in Acco,
with love, Dvora
Unfortenately I cant be there, But I am there with my spirit.
Thank you, dear Hiba. I hope all of us will be there, in body or in spirit. Then we are realy forming a peace force.
For Hebrew speakers, we need some translation here please.
