CHILDREN OF ABRAHAM
This compelling documentary explores the troubled relationship between the three Abrahamic faiths: Judaism, Christianity and Islam, in the aftermath of 9/11. In January 1998, twenty-two Jewish Americans traveled to Israel and the Palestinian territories as part of the Compassionate Listening Project. The film follows the Jewish participants as they visit with and listen to Israelis and Palestinians, from leaders to refugees, and seek to understand the complexities of religious, political, and human rights issues. This stunning documentary introduces the Compassionate Listening reconciliation model, and humanizes each Israeli and Palestinian portrayed. The film delivers a compelling message that conflict can be transformed through the simple act of listening.
Before and after the film, everyone's invited to indulge in our Humanist Tea House.
