ISRAELI/PALESTINIAN TALK

UU friend Helen Engelhardt made a 10-day visit to Israel and Palestine three and a half years ago led by a group called Rabbis for Human Rights. The focus was on some of the consequences of the Occupation of the West Bank and on the groups who are working cooperatively on many issues of mutual concern for Israelis and Palestinians.
