Walk for Peace on September 11th

Please Join Us As We Walk Together In A Spirit Of Peace With Muslims, Christians, Jews And All People Of Good Will

LemTree group imageThe Walk will begin at the Islamic Center of Boulder at 5:00 pm; at 5:15 pm walk to Congregation Har Hashem, then at 6:15 pm to St. Andrew Presbyterian Church, and culminate at 6:45 pm on the Boulder Downtown Mall. There will be intercultural music at the Mall as well as speakers representing several faith communities, starting at 7:15 pm.

We are designing The Walk to create a new experience for people of separate communities to walk together with an intention of getting to know each other one-on-one and breaking down stereotypes. This is an essential component in building healthy communities. We believe The Walk for Peace and Solidarity on 9/11 will strengthen Boulder, become an annual event and a model for others in an effort to build healthy communities.

Like us on Facebook: The Lemon Tree Group: A Walk to Build Bridges 9/11

The Lemon Tree Group includes Jewish, Muslim, Christian, American, Palestinian, Lebanese and Israeli members who have been meeting for five years. It was originally started as a gathering in Congregation Nevei Kodesh to read the book The Lemon Tree by Sandy Tolan and to raise money to support Open House in Ramle Israel, the preschool program at this Israeli-Arab community center whose history is chronicled in the book.

We meet monthly to discuss history and current events in the Middle East from all points of view. Together we have created a safe and trusting environment to speak our truth, share our food and stay current with an open mind. The Walk grows out of the spirit of The Lemon Tree Group.

SEPTEMBER 11, 2014: WALK FOR PEACE 5:00 – 8:00 pm.
