Tree of Life Conference

How Can WE Be Agents of Change to Secure Human Rights for Palestinians and Israelis?

In this conference, we will hear from Israeli, Palestinian and American voices of conscience who will help us understand that in the long struggle toward justice and peace in the Holy Land, the fulcrum of change must involve the international community. This requires that we all operate as agents of change to secure universal human rights for Palestinians and Israelis.

Our conference speakers will remind us there is hope that, in working together, we can reach that critical “tipping point,” the moment at which the tide turns, and positive change gets underway. As Archimedes said, “Give me a lever and I can move the world!” 

Please help us amplify these voices of conscience – attend one
(or more!) of these events, bring your friends and family.
Please alert friends and family to programs close to them!
