Palestine / Israel Today: Understanding the Reality
Friday, December 7, 2012, 6:30 pm
Holy Family Catholic Worker House
912 E. 31st Street
Kansas City, MO
Jan Cebula, OSF, is a former member of Holy Family Catholic Worker House (1984 – 2004), living in the community for the first ten years of the house. Jan has just returned from an Interfaith Peace-Builders delegation study tour of Palestine/Israel.
The delegation focused on the Palestinian olive harvest which takes place each Autumn. The olive harvest is an occasion of particular cultural and economic importance for Palestinian communities and a time when tensions between Israeli settlers and Palestinian residents of the West Bank run high.
Jan and her 31 companions witnessed the everyday violence of occupation and learned from those committed to nonviolent struggle, human rights and peace with justice.
They sought to reach deeper to uncover the roots of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and explore avenues for justice and change.
Join us at Holy Family House to hear her report and recommendations, and to explore the possibilities of creative nonviolence in the Holy Land.
