Israeli Robi Damelin’s 28 year-old son David was killed by a Palestinian sniper three years ago in the West Bank. Palestinian Nadwa Sarandah’s sister Naila was stabbed to death by a Jewish settler on the streets of East Jerusalem.
Both are determined to transform their loss and grief into hope for a peaceful future between their two peoples. They are living examples of the possibility of reconciliation.
This nationwide speaking tour is organized by the Parents’ Circle, the Fellowship of Reconciliation’s Interfaith Peace-Builders in Washington, DC, and the Resource Center for Nonviolence in Santa Cruz. Robi Damelin and Nadwa Saranda are members of The Parents’ Circle, made up of hundreds of Israeli and Palestinian bereaved families who have lost loved ones as a result of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
Organized in Modesto by the Modesto Peace/Life Center, hosted by the Modesto Church of the Brethren.
