Celebrate SIPP 2019 on April 28 – See Projects and Partners

The Boulder community is invited to join Sustainable Israeli-Palestinian Projects (SIPP) on Sunday, April 28, 2019 from 4:00 to 5:30 pm at the West Boulder Senior Center, for a feast for mind and body. The afternoon will feature thought-provoking presentations by former 2nd District US Congressman David Skaggs and Dr. Amro, founder of the Green Land Society for Health and Development (GLSHD) as well as delicious hors d’oeuvres and desserts.

Congressman Skaggs will speak about his experiences promoting civil dialogue. Dr. Amro will speak about GLSHD’s Environmental Education Center (EEC) located in Idhna (near Hebron). The EEC received a small grant from Environmentally Sustainable Projects, an Initiative of SIPP.

There will also be informal opportunities to learn other about other SIPP projects including work by the Nature Palestine Society to catalog local bird and plant species as part of a larger effort to promote environmental awareness and eco-tourism in the Kidron/Nar Basin. Five hundred million birds annually traverse this second most import passageway for migrating birds to and from Africa.

Dr. Amro will be in Colorado for an intensive week of meetings with US environmental and education professionals. In addition to his work with GLSHD, Dr. Amro has partnered with Project Rozana, an initiative which helps transport Palestinian children and patients to Israeli hospitals while also providing opportunities for Palestinian doctors to obtain additional skills.

SIPP suggests a donation of $50.00 per person, but a donation is not required.

About Sid Fox

Sid Fox renewed his interest and study from his Hebrew School days (where he was inspired by Deborah Pessin's insightful series 'The Story of the Jewish People') when he read James Michener's "The Source". Sid eventually taught a two semester Sunday class for adults at their home when their children were at Sunday School. It was based on 15 years study of the Bible, the three hundred years of modern research and Biblical Archaeology areas he continued to pursue as he branched out to Shakespeare, the Classics and other interests.
