Interfaith Understanding in Israel and Palestine

Blog|The Rev. Canon Anna E. Rossi

The Israeli/Palestinian conflict is among the most intractable in modern history. The “peace deal” put forth by the White House offers dim hope for a just and lasting resolution to the conflict. Whatever the shape of a just solution, it must involve dialogue and compromise by all parties, to bring about peace and security for all people in the region.

At Grace this is the year of building bridges — bridges toward justice, reconciliation and mutual understanding. Work with us to strengthen understanding between these two ancient faiths.
