Israelis-Palestinians: Fostering Peace and Reconciliation

Today at 1:30pm be a part of fostering peace and reconciliation in the Holy Land, a new vision of hope for a just and peaceful future!

 

You are invited to virtually join with Israelis and Palestinians in Tel Aviv and Ramallah for the Joint Memorial Ceremony as they resolve to end the occupation and choose a new path of peace, equality, and dignity for all. 

 

The Joint Memorial Ceremony will take place virtually, live-streamed from Tel Aviv and Ramallah on Monday, April 27 at 1:30pm. 

 

During recent L.O.V.E. and academic partnership exploratory trips, a number of Manhattan College faculty, staff, administrators and students have visited in-person with co-sponsors of the Joint Memorial Ceremony, members of the Parents Circle – Families Forum, a joint Israeli-Palestinian organization made up of more than 600 bereaved families, who, instead of choosing revenge, have chosen a path of reconciliation.

Hoping you can join in this Mission Month event as we call to mind the hallmarks of the Lasallian heritage that inspire the Mission of Manhattan College:

  • excellence in teaching, 
  • respect for human dignity, 
  • reflection on faith and its relation to reason, 
  • an emphasis on ethical conduct, 
  • and commitment to social justice.
