Palestinian and Israeli
Bereaved Families for Peace
“The Parents Circle”
Robi Damelin is a Jewish Israeli whose son David was fatally shot by a Palestinian in 2002. Bassam Aramin is a Palestinian whose daughter Abim was shot dead by Israeli police in 2007. They are part of the Parents Circle – Families Forum (PCFF), a joint Palestinian Israeli organization of over 600 families who have lost a close family member as a result of the conflict.
Coming together, sharing the pain of their loss, refusing to seek revenge – have let them experience the possibility of reconciliation. This is the possibility they pass on to both sides in the conflict and what they will share with us.
Three Steering Committee members who met with this group during trips to Israel and Palestine were deeply moved by the experience. We encourage you to attend and bring a friend.
This event is sponsored solely by the Abrahamic Initiative. We are grateful to B’nai Havurah for allowing us to use their facilities.
