Palestine – Israel Update

Join Dr. Michael Spath for Sundays in February (18 and 25) during Sunday morning Adult Class (9:00-9:50am, in the Chapel) as he facilitates a conversation about the following issues:

  • How has President Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and potentially move the US Embassy to Jerusalem impacted the Palestinian Christian and Muslim population as well as the "peace process"?
  • What about the recent decision by the government of Israel to ban the leaders of 20 organizations worldwide, including in the US the American Friends Service Committee (the Quakers), Jewish Voice for Peace, and the US Campaign for Palestinian Rights (the latter two organizations to which Michael belongs)?
  • Arrests, detentions, and imprisonment of Palestinian children and youth from within the West Bank are on the rise, the most recent being the celebrated case of 16-year-old teenage girl, Ahed Tamimi (Michael's group this past June visited with Ahed and her family in their home).
  • Where does the United Church of Christ stand with regard to these issues?

Middle Schoolers are Learning About our Neighbors-in-Faith

 

This month our Middle Schoolers are learning about our neighbors-in-faith by exploring Judaism.  Curious learners of all ages are invited to visit our Hands on Judaism display.  Like our past explorations of Islam and Buddhism, these stations look at what Jewish people do -- through everyday acts such as prayer, meals, celebrations and charitable giving.  These self-guided stations will be set up in the C.E. Lounge upstairs through the end of the month.
