Shalom Sahbity (Peace, My Friend!)

The middle East has been in the news a lot recently, especially since Vice President Joe Biden visited Israel a couple of weeks ago. Some friends of NY Faith & Justice have put together a performance piece that will deal with many contemporary issues of the Middle East conflict. Believing that "genuine transformation happens when people have a space for authentic and creative exchange of ideas and experiences," these performances should be a great way to start an important dialogue on this issue. See the letter below for all of the details.
