ISRAEL, PALESTINE, AND THE ART OF WAGING PEACE
For two weeks in January, Craig took 15 VWU students to Israel and Palestine, so as to visit key sites and—in addition to typical tourist stops—experience a dual narrative tour (both Israeli and Palestinian perspectives), and to stay at kibbutzim, experience homestays with Palestinians, work with Lutheran farmers, and meet Bedouins and Druze who negotiate what life in Israel means. In addition, the students met with a variety of organizations that work—with people very different from themselves—toward peace. Come hear more.
