Last week, all our EAs got a break from their difficult work as humanitarian observers and had the chance to hear new perspectives on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict.
Here are a few tweet updates and reflections from the week:
Meeting with Nomika Zion of The Other Voice:
“Palestinians have become invisible to majority of Israeli society. The occupation has become second nature.” – Nomika Zion, The Other Voice — Luther Aquino (@lutheraquino) October 2, 2013
Meeting with Ruth Hiller of New Profile:
“From the age of 16, our children are no longer ours. They belong to the state.” – Ruth Hiller on mandatory military service in Israel — Luther Aquino (@lutheraquino) October 3, 2013
A chance to relax in Haifa:
Experiencing Shabbat Worship and Dinner:
We were received as guests in a Shabbat Worship Service in a synagogue in Jerusalem. It was the first time I saw one. It was fascinating.— Luther Aquino (@lutheraquino) October 4, 2013
Then we all went to a Shabbat dinner with some Jewish families. Night full of prayer, good food, and good conversations. Shabbat shalom! — Luther Aquino (@lutheraquino) October 4, 2013
