Tikkun Olam Committee
The Tikkun Olam Committee and Parents Circle – Families Forum invite you to join a virtual conversation with two courageous bereaved mothers, an Israeli and a Palestinian. Despite having paid the highest price in the Israeli/Palestinian conflict – the loss of a child – both women have chosen a unique path of reconciliation and dialogue instead of revenge.

Date TBD in February, but will be at 9:00 or 10:00 a.m. because of the time difference between Israel and California. If you are interested in joining the conversation, please contact Marci Gerston at marci.gerston@gmail.com or admin@templesanjose.org.
