The Parents Circle: “United in Grief”
The Parents Circle – Families Forum is a joint Israeli-Palestinian organization made up of more than 700 bereaved families. Their common bond is that they have lost a close family member to the conflict. But instead of choosing revenge, they have chosen a path of reconciliation.
The presentation is about an hour on December 16 at 10:30am via Zoom. Always with one Palestinian and one Israeli member speaking together, and answering questions. They share their stories of loss and their unique choice of reconciliation rather than revenge. Their stories generate empathy, humanization, and understanding.
American Friends of the Parents Circle – Families Forum shares the human side of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict with the American public in order to foster a peace and reconciliation process.
