Join us to ‘Invest in Peace’ at three events


Everyone is invited to join the Board of Deputies’ “Invest in Peace” events, in partnership with Churches Together in Britain and Ireland. Hosted by churches and synagogues, this new initiative invites communities to come together to support Israeli-Palestinian Peacebuilding.

Join us to hear the incredible stories of two bereaved parents who promote reconciliation as an alternative to revenge:

In March 2002, Robi Damelin’s son, David, was shot by a Palestinian sniper. He was 28 years old. In January 2007, Bassam Aramin’s 10-year-old daughter, Abir, was shot by an Israeli soldier. As a result of their experiences, Robi and Bassam joined The Parents Circle – Families Forum, which is renowned for its work to promote peace and reconciliation between Israelis and Palestinians. Now, on a rare visit to London, Robi and Bassam will address audiences at three events.
