Friends of Roots: Two Truths in One Heart, Two Peoples in One Land (Discussion)

March 24, 2022 | 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Khalil Sayegh is a Gaza-born Palestinian from a refugee family who grew up with deep anger towards Israel and its people. Hanan Schlesinger is a passionate Zionist settler living in the West Bank. Together, these unlikely partners are paving a path of peace for their people.Join Khalil and Hanan as they share their personal, interconnected stories and present the groundbreaking and challenging grassroots work of Roots/Shorashim/Judur. They come, not with a peace plan, but with the conviction that human understanding and trust are the prerequisites for lasting justice, freedom, and leave in this land they both call home.Shaken and transformed, Rabbi Hanan – together with Khalil and other local Israelis and Palestinians – formed Roots, the Israeli Palestinian grassroots initiative for understanding, nonviolence, and transformation to build bridges of reconciliation between the two sides.We invite you to join Khalil and Hanan as they share their personal, interconnected stories and present the groundbreaking and challenging grassroots work of Roots. They do not come with blueprinted peace plans in hand, but with the deep conviction that human understanding and trust are the prerequisites for lasting justice, freedom, and peace in that little sliver of land they both call home.
