Can the Children of Abraham be at peace?
Join us and learn how during a special evening of conversation with Rabbi Hayon and Rev. Canon Nicholas Porter, Executive Director of Jerusalem Peacebuilders (JPB). The two will discuss JPB’s powerful work of bringing together Americans, Israelis, and Palestinians for interfaith understanding, leadership development, and peacebuilding. Each year, JPB works with thousands of youth and adults, both in Israel and in the United States including teens from the Helfman Religious School program.
JPB is a Christian ministry of interfaith reconciliation that partners with Jewish, Christian and Muslim institutions to provide Middle Eastern educators and youth with the skills, relationships and support they need to be effective leaders and change agents. Its programs are developed and informed by the faith and professional experience of the Founding Director, The Rev. Canon Nicholas Porter. Since 2011, JPB has steadily expanded and now leads humanitarian projects and educational programs in Jerusalem, Israel, and Palestine as well as intensive summer programs in the United States and England involving thousands of participants annually.
This event will be in-person in the Barish Sanctuary and available via live stream through the Barish Sanctuary streaming video page.
