Khalil Sayegh is a Gaza-born Palestinian from a refugee family who grew up with deep anger towards Israel and its people. Hanan Schlesinger is a passionate Zionist settler living in the West Bank. Together, these unlikely partners are paving a path of peace for their peoples.
Join Khalil and Hanan as they share their personal, interconnected stories and present the groundbreaking and challenging grassroots work of Roots/Shorashim/Judur. They come, not with a peace place, but with the conviction that human understanding and trust are the prerequisites for lasting justice, freedom and peace in this land they both call home.
Space is limited due to COVID-19 protocols.
Sponsors: Orange County Interfaith Network, the Jewish Collaborative of Orange County, St. Paul's Episcopal Church, and the Rose Project of Jewish Federation of Orange County.
