As members of the Lemon Tree Group in Boulder, Colorado, we would like to invite you, your congregation, student groups, family, your readership, and friends to join us in a walk to build bridges and unity.
Sunday, September 25, 2016, 4:30 – 7:00 pm.
We believe that as we walk together in peace and solidarity, we will strengthen Boulder and become a model for building healthy communities.
Please note that a short program of music, refreshments and speakers will be included at each stop of the walk:
- 4:30: Our walk will begin at Congregation Har HaShem 3950 Baseline Road
- 4:50: Continue to Atonement Lutheran Church Baseline Road & Inca Parkway
- 5:20: Walk to Islamic Center of Boulder 5495 Baseline Road
- 6:00: Walk to Second Baptist Church of Boulder 5300 Baseline Road
- 6:30: Return to Congregation Har HaShem
This is a non-political event sponsored by the Lemon Tree Group.
The Lemon Tree Group includes Jewish, Muslim, Christian, American, Palestinian, Lebanese and Israeli members who have been meeting for over seven 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 the spirit of The Lemon Tree Group.
