Abraham Children Group

From 15/6/2013 to 29/6/2013

The group signed-up for a ‘listening’ tour through which the participants wanted to learn about the issues and contemporary lives of Palestinians and Israelis by meeting persons who are members of the different religious communities, i.e., Christians, Muslims, Jews, Samaritans, Druze, and Baha'i.

The tour began in Jerusalem.  After that, the group visited Bethlehem, Hebron, Ramallah, Nablus, Nazareth, Majdal Shams, and finally Haifa.

The participants discovered the richness of old city souks in Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Hebron, and Nablus.  They met Palestinians university students and professors, representatives from refugee camps, human rights workers and Jewish settlers.  The group had the chance to examine religious resources from those who look to Abraham as their founding father.
