Healing the Heart of the Holy Land

The Abrahamic Reunion is launching a crowdfunding campaign for a week of healing, multi-faith peace-building events all across the Holy Land

To launch the next wave of peacebuilding in the Holy Land, help us raise $40,000 

Healing the Heart of the Holy Land is a powerful week of events envisioned by the AR’s peacemakers that reaches out across the Holy Land to bring solidarity, encounter, dialogue, and healing, and founds ongoing peace-building projects around the Holy Land:

  • Multi-faith Healing Peace Journeys in the South, North, and West Bank: the AR’s peace-builders visit different peoples affected on all “sides” across the Holy Land – those affected by religious violence, without water, who’ve lost family members to terror or conflict, were injured, lost land, or many other tragedies that befall the people of the Holy Land, bringing busloads of Muslims, Christians, Jews, and Druze across the Holy Land and to each others’ holy sites, visit other communities, eat, dance, walk in nature, and dialogue together, and pray in solidarity with other affected groups, providing mobility to all involved.
  • Inaugural “Young Peacemakers” day-long training program. Future Peacemakers will also be paired with AR Peacemakers as mentors for the week of events
  • First meeting of the AR’s Families Forum – bringing whole families to cook, eat, play, study, and pray together
  • Regional AR Chapter Events: East Jerusalem, Shefar’am, West Bank Coordinators Chapter, Southern AR Chapter, and Nazareth Chapter, helping the AR decentralize and reach more people, deepening roots of peace throughout the Holy Land
  • AR Women’s Peace Retreat, designed, run, envisioned by the AR’s female Peacemakers
  • Environmental Prayer Event for Clean Water and joint Eco-Stewardship across the Holy Land
  • Signs Of Peace: each place visited by the AR, we’ll leave visible Signs Of Peace, planted like seeds of hope across the land.
  • 2nd Annual Holy Land Peacebuilding Summit, A full-day conference of speakers and massive multi-faith dinner on the last day, bringing people from all the previous events across the Holy Land together under one roof

 

These are the main events part of Healing The Heart of the Holy Land – it’s ambitious, but this can set the tone for the next year, or two years, of the AR’s work in the Holy Land, and empower and launch a new wave of peacebuilding across the Holy Land.

There will be religious, spiritual, and beautiful gifts for all supporting the AR’s crowdfunding, videos from the peacemakers, from David Shahabuddin Less, and from other supporters of the AR. We’re counting on your support to make Healing the Heart of the Holy Land a reality.
