The American Friends Service Committee and Interfaith Witness for Middle East Peace Present Two Important Events:



A Voice of Healing and Reconciliation from Gaza



Friday April 24th, 7-9PM.

First Congregational Church

2345 Channing Way, Berkeley


Join us for an evening with Dr. Izzeldin Abuelaish and Barbara Lubin from Middle East Children's Alliance, for a conversation and a memorial ceremony.

Dr. Abuelaish is a man who has devoted his life to caring for the health of families and children, and reconciliation between Palestinians and Israelis. Tragically, his three daughters and niece were killed in January during the latest attack on Gaza, by Israeli mortar fire while in his home in Jabalya Refugee Camp. He is now working tirelessly to promote a vision of peace, reconciliation and healing to sustain his daughter’s memories.

Barbara Lubin was able to deliver 4 tons of medicine, plus truckloads of food and other supplies, including an ambulance equipped as a mobile intensive care unit, to Gaza to serve the thousands of injured and displaced, in the southern Gaza Strip during the weeks following the "ceasefire".
