On Tuesday, February 27th we hosted a conversation with Vivian Silver, from the grassroots movement Women Wage Peace, a group of tens of thousands of Jews and Arabs across the political spectrum in Israel, with our President, The Rev. Dr. Katharine R. Henderson. The discussion was followed by a Q&A with the audience.

“Are you happy with being moral right? Is that enough for you? For me, it’s not… the strategy that has lead me to be an activist for the last 40 years or more isn’t working… Women Wage Peace offers another way.”
