Recognizing the mutual fears, alienation and suspicion that exist between Israelis and Palestinians, the Sulha Peace Project brings together such diverse factions as soldiers, stone throwers, young professionals, academicians and laborers. Yoav Peck, the Co-Executive Director of the Sulha Peace Project and Fulla Jubeh, a Sulha leader, will share stories about the Project’s work helping Israelis and Palestinians “to encounter the other in our full humanity.” They will present the difficulties of this kind of work and share the unique tools and approaches used at Sulha for bringing people together and renewing their hope for a better future.

The Lecture was created in memory of Theo L. Dorpat to honor his interest in this area.
