Politics and Prayer in East Jerusalem: A one-day study tour for Rabbis
Through an up-close look at the neighborhood of Silwan, including meetings with residents, we will learn how settlement activity is changing the face of East Jerusalem--and even of the peace process, about the continued legal battle for control of Robinson's Arch (the "egalitarian kotel"), and about how rabbis and their communities can help create a sacred and safe Jerusalem for the future. The day will conclude with a conversation with the leaders of Tag Meir, the peaceful response to Price Tag attacks.
Your guides for the day:
Susie Sawicki, Associate Director, New Israel Fund
Rabbi Gideon Sylvester, Senior Educator in Israel, T'ruah
Betty Herschman, Director of International Relations & Advocacy, Ir Amim
Yoni Mizrahi, Emek Shaveh
