Build bridges not walls: World Week for Peace in Palestine Israel
September 20th – 26th 2015
Two women, Palestinian Clemance Handal and Israeli Hanna Barag discuss the separation wall, its purpose, its effects and their hope for its eventual dismantling.
- It’s time for Palestinians and Israelis to share a just peace.
- It’s time for freedom from occupation.
- It’s time for equal rights.
- It’s time for the healing of wounded souls.
Congregations and individuals around the globe who share the hope of justice shall unite during the week to take peaceful actions, together, to create a common international public witness. Worship and educational resources are available in different languages – please make them part of your church events.
We invite you to use the hashtag #WallWillFall to talk about this year’s World Week for Peace in Palestine Israel.
