Give peace a chance: NSW JBD’s first NGO study tour of Israel and the Palestinian Territories

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Come and engage with participants of a very special trip to Israel and the West Bank, whose focus was on human stories and the potential of ordinary people to take up the reins when leaders fail. Hear about what they saw, what they learned, what changed them, and what they plan to do with all of this. Ask them questions, even tough ones. After what they’ve seen, they are well equipped for a rousing discussion!

Regrettably, Magda Szubanski will no longer be speaking at Limmud Oz.
