October 26-November 8 RCNV’s own Sami Abed will co-lead this delegation with Interfaith Peace Builders. This is the journey Scott Kennedy led more many years. Meet RCNV’s allies in Israel and Palestine. Experience the situation. Return enlivened by new relationships.
This delegation will provide an opportunity to participate in the Palestinian olive harvest season — generally a time of great community activism, where people of all ages from Palestine, Israeli peace and justice groups, and international groups join farmers as they reap their harvest. It is international support that makes the harvest possible in many cases. You will hear from Palestinian farmers and learn of the importance of agriculture to the Palestinian economy and culture. As with other delegations, you will also meet additional Israelis and Palestinians working for peace and justice.
