There is urgency to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. With every military and militant attack, with every settlement, with every escalation of rhetoric, and with every death the stakes increase. Not solving the conflict is not an option. Waiting is not an option. The time for action is now.

Each of our speakers shares a common hope for a just peace in Israel and Palestine. They will address the current spiritual, political, and social aspirations of the Israelis and Palestinians.
