Roots Dialogue Events Address The Divide Between Israel And Palestine

Logo for Roots

There will be opportunities in the Capital Region to hear a dialogue between an Orthodox Israeli settler and a Palestinian activist as they tell their personal stories and of their efforts to build a better future.

Rabbi Hanan Schlesinger and Shadi Abu Awwad of Roots come with no ready peace plans in hand, but only with the conviction that human understanding and trust will be the prerequisites for lasting justice, freedom and peace on that tiny sliver of land that they both call home.

Rabbi Hanan and Shadi Abu Awwad will speak in several locations in the Capital Region tonight through Wednesday.

Monday, November 4, 7 p.m. - Congregation Ohav Shalom, Albany, New York

Tuesday, November 5, 7 p.m. - Hillel and Jewish Student Life - Skidmore College, Saratoga Springs, New York

Wednesday, November 6, 9 a.m. - First Lutheran Church of Albany

Wednesday, November 6, 7 p.m. - Islamic Center of the Capital District, Schenectady, New York
