This is what is so cool about this trip, and about the diverse and powerful efforts of peacemaking and reconciliation going on in Israel. Just yesterday I learned about Shevet Achim, an organization the works with Save A Child’s Heart, a world renown hospital in Tel Aviv that provides medical help for children from around the world, who have congenital heart problems, regardless of national boundary or ethnicity. But Shevet Achim also provides community living for volunteers, staff and their guests. Take a read.
Not only did I find out about this yesterday, but I was invited to share a dinner with the community, and one of my Presbyterian for Middle East Peace friends has offered to sponsor the meal. If time permits I will also have lunch with their Syrian and Kurdish guests.
