A conversation with
Rabbi Jeremy Milgrom and Husam El Nounou

Two human rights activists, an Israeli and a Palestinian, discuss their work for a non-violent solution to the Israel-Palestine conflict. They will focus especially on their work with The Rebuilding Alliance, which seeks to rebuild Palestinian homes that have been demolished by Israel.

Rabbi Jeremy Milgrom is an American–born rabbi who has lived in Israel since 1968 and has pursued a just peace for Palestinians and Israelis throughout his career. He has been involved in important initiatives in the Israeli peace camp at their critical starting moments over the last 27 years. Rabbi Milgrom has been a pioneer in interfaith partnerships with Christian and Moslem Palestinians. He co–founded and directed Clergy for Peace with Rev. Shehadeh Shehadeh and has been active in bringing volunteers to the West Bank to tutor Bedouin children of the Jahalin tribe who have been forcibly moved there from their home in the Negev. He frequently lectures at Israeli and European forums on Judaism, non–violence and other related subjects.

Husam El Nounou is a co-founder of the Gaza Community Mental Health Programme(GCMHP) along with Dr Eyad El Sarraj. GCMHP is the Palestinian NGO that partners with the Rebuilding Alliance in the Rachel Corrie Rebuilding Campaign in Gaza. As the public relations coordinator for GCMHP, he serves as editor–in–chief of a bi–monthly magazine, Amwaj, has chaired the organizing committees for five international conferences, and represents GCMHP in the Palestinian Non–governmental Organizations Network (PNGO) where he served as the first coordinator for the Network Steering Committee. Fluent in English and his native Arabic, and also proficient in Hebrew. Mr. El Nounou traveled to the U.S. in 2000 as part of the “International Visitors Programme” organized by the US State Department. He deeply believes in peace and coexistence and sees this as a human rights issue, one that ordinary people can impact.
