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.
