Attend a 2012 Tree of Life Conference

Our member groups Friends of Sabeel of North America and The Tree of Life Educational Fund are pleased to offer this series of conferences on Israel and Palestine. Their special focus will be on "Education: How Can We Embrace Our Common Humanity." In both Israel and the occupied territories, increasing numbers of Jews, Muslims, and Christians have reached the conclusion that the Land of Promise will be truly promising when those who live there learn to embrace their common humanity and share that sacred and fragile land. In this series of conferences, you will have the opportunity to hear from a number of Palestinian, Israeli, and American voices of conscience, and their hope is that their stories and their compelling visions of a more peaceful world will inspire us to follow their lead.
