Join us for The Lemon Tree Group’s 5th Annual March for Unity: Embracing our Humanity on Sunday, September 30, 2018 from 2:00 – 4:15 pm.
The Lemon Tree Group’s March for Unity brings together people from different communities and backgrounds who do not usually meet, talk, and listen to one another. We encourage walkers to get to know each other in an effort to transcend differences through understanding. All are welcome!
We will start at 2:00 pm at Congregation Har HaShem, 3950 Baseline Road in Boulder. Together we will walk next door to the Atonement Lutheran Church and proceed down Baseline Road to the Islamic Center of Boulder. The march will continue to the Second Baptist Church of Boulder at 5300 Baseline Road. Along the walk there will be music, water, snacks, and access to restrooms. At each stop there will be a greeting from that community. The March will end with music by the Gospel Choir of the Second Baptist Church . You can join us at any point along the path.

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 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 March invites the wider community to share in the spirit of The Lemon Tree Group.
