In October, 2007, fifty young Israelis and Palestinians gathered for two days for a unique and meaningful dialogue seminar. Overcoming years of violence, forced separation, and mutual resentment, the retreat was a rare opportunity for the next generation of Israeli and Palestinian leaders to explore the fears and prejudices that permeate the violent conflict between their peoples and nations. Because of this experience of exploring not only the conflict, but also the personal and political common ground, friendships were forged and a constituency for peace was created.

Noa Epstein and Abed Erekat, coordinators of this dialogue seminar (and others), will be visiting New York to share their experiences and desire to continue to build this constituency for peace. We are sure that you will be moved by the passion and promise of these two young leaders who are engaging in the courageous effort of creating a better future for their peoples.

A video overview of one of the dialogue seminars can be seen at http://peacenow.org/features.asp?rid=&cid=4121, and a recent interview with Noa Epstein can be heard at http://peacenow.org/updates.asp?rid=0&cid=4861.
