Join us for an inspiring evening with young Israeli and Palestinian women leaders speaking about their work for peace. Creativity for Peace will take place on Thursday, August 11, 2011, from 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm at Congregation Bonai Shalom in Boulder.
Creativity for Peace, based in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and in Israel and the West Bank, nurtures the next generation of female Israeli and Palestinian leaders. Since its establishment in 2003, 178 young women of Christian, Jewish, Muslim, and other faiths have participated in a three-week summer camp in New Mexico and year-round gatherings and trainings in Israel and the West Bank.
Thirty-five young women have chosen to make a deeper commitment to peacemaking through Creativity for Peace’s Young Leaders Program, in which they gain a greater understanding of self, learn techniques for self-resiliency and empowerment, and practice skills, such as leading groups and public speaking. Young leaders also serve as junior counselors at camp.
Four members of Creativity for Peace’s Young Leaders Program will share their experiences living in conflict and violence and discuss their ongoing work for peace.
The young women are:
Aya Basheer, an Arab Israeli, age 22, from Um al-Fahm, Israel
Sivan Kedem, a Jewish Israeli, age 23, from Binyamina, Israel
Muna Sbouh, a Palestinian, age 19, from Nablus, West Bank
Zoey Roziner, a Jewish Israeli, age 19, from Kibbutz Lahavot, HaBashan, Israel
