Past participants share:

“I am sincerely overwhelmed with the wonder coming to life here, and I see it as a significant contribution to the discourse of peace in Israel and in Palestine.” (Prof. Avi Elkayam, Head of the Department of Jewish Philosophy, and the Shlomo Moussaieff Center of Kabala Studies - the Faculty of Jewish Studies, Bar Ilan University)

“I and my friend Judur Khaled Abu Awad, from Shorashim NPO, came to this convention as teachers and found ourselves learners. I was exposed to a new world of values, a world of commitment to the good and the other, of deep thought and of sincere, serious inner work. I met kind, caring and thinking people of values.” (Rabbi Hanan Schlesinger)

“It is extremely exciting for me to meet so many spiritual leaders of so many traditions and religions, who come here and wish to figure out together how we make it for real.” (Rotem Gur Avieli)


“It took us between 5-5.5 hours to get here. It is so difficult to pass the crossings, but I would not give up coming here, because I love this place.” (Amir Hussein)


“I felt that there was something deeper here than respect. There is no patronizing and this is not some nice meditation, but really working to achieve internal peace and peace between people”. (Farid Mahmid - and educator and a translator at the convention)


“We came to this place because we believe and know that this place allows us, and shares the same beliefs with us - the belief in coexistence and peace.” (Amal Asdi)
