Dr. Izzeldin Abuelaish, a Gazan physician, cares for both Israelis and Palestinian patients at an Israeli hospital.  A long time peace advocate, he's spoken out against all violence including suicide bombings.  Three of Dr. Abuelaish's daughters and a niece were killed in the Gaza incursion, and another daghter was serverely injured.  Dr. Abuelaish's tragedy became kow worldwide through his anguished phone call to Israeli TV.  His broken voice deeply touched Israelis who knew of their own pain, but not of the civilian suffering in Gaza.  Dr. Abuelaish has resolved to channel this pain by continuing to work for peace and reconciliation.  Dr. Abuelaish and Kehilla extend the olive branch in the hope of opening hearts and bringing people closer together.
