West Hartford Citizens for Peace and
& University of Hartford's Humanities Center and CAPPA (Campus Alliance for Progressive Politics and Action)
Supporting Peace, Reconciliation, and Tolerance in the Middle East
Robi Damelin and Ali Abu Awwad
1-3pm Monday, March 19
Great Room of Konover Campus Center at the University of Hartford
Robi and Ali will talk about their paths of reconciliation after the losses of their own family members: see their biographies. They are both members of the Parents Circle, which consists of hundreds of families--equal numbers of Palestinian and Israeli families--that have lost loved ones in the Middle East conflict and are spearheading a reconciliation process between Israelis and Palestinians. After their presentations a panel of respondents (Rabbi Fuchs, Sohaib Sultan, and Rabbi Cohen-Kiener) will talk about how we can join in the reconciliation process. There will be ample time for Q&A. The speakers will also appear at 7-9pm in West Hartford's Town Hall.
