Perspectives: The Weekly Edition - Jewish-Arab Peace
April 20, 2012
If you have not yet watched the S+L documentary Abraham's Tent, this episode will serve to whet your appetite. Fr. Samuel Barhoum, director of the Kids 4 Peace program in Galilee (which is featured in the documentary) has the conviction that to foster peace we must seek to know one another. He believes that by nourishing friendships across religions beginning in the younger generations, we will establish a true and lasting peace.
This week on an encore edition of Perspectives, Pedro speaks with Fr. Barhoum and his wife Susan who discuss the peace process in the Middle East as they witness it, being two Anglican Arabs living in Galilee. They were here at S+L after the Kids 4 Peace camp ended and told us about inter-faith relations in the Holy Land.
