Can We Be Peacemakers for Palestine?

"Can We Be Peacemakers For Palestine?" is an educational program developed by the Presbyterian Peace Fellowship for religious, community and other groups interested in justice for Palestinians. The program consists of three sessions of about two hours each. The sessions could be scheduled over three separate days or all three on one day.

Techniques and Talking Points: For pastors and other church leaders regarding Israel and Palestine

Over the coming months, many of us will be in the position of interpreting the actions of the General Assembly in our congregations and with friends who are Presbyterian and from other faith traditions, and possibly with leaders from the Jewish and Muslim communities. Some of us will have the opportunity to craft letters to the editor or to make appearances on local radio or TV stations. We want to provide you with some background to help you prepare well to take advantage of those opportunities.
