Join us for a discussion with Mona Al Zuhairi, Palestine Coordinator for the Christian Peacemaker Teams, and Joe Getzoff, a founding member of Christian-Jewish Allies (Philadelphia) and Ph.D. Candidate in Geography at the University of Minnesota.
Mona will speak about current conditions in the city of Hebron, the most intensely occupied city in the West Bank, and put them in the context of international law. Joe, who recently returned from fieldwork in the region, will focus on the ongoing conflict between the State of Israel and Bedouin citizens in the Naqab/Negev region and discuss several of the main organizations that are both linked to the settler movement and are responsible for some of the increased pressure against Bedouins.
The event will take place in the Heschel-King Room of Synagogue Mishkan Shalom. Light snacks will be provided. Sponsored by Jewish Voice for Peace - Philadelphia and Mishkan Shalom.
