Dear Friends of Jewish-Palestinian Reconciliation,
We ask you to send us a List of People and Institutions you believe should be mailed a copy of the 24-page “Evening Program and Reconciliation Resource” we are printing for our November 15th San Francisco dinner for 400 Jewish and Palestinian Americans, and others, with Ambassador Dennis Ross, to begin changing the nature of our relationships and invigorating the public peace process.
The Illustrated Booklet has instructional pages on listening, dialogue, and conflict resolution, with inspirational quotes and passages. It has examples of citizen-initiated, grassroots projects that are already bringing Palestinians and Israelis together in dialogue and cooperation. The “Evening Program” portion shows the flow of our dinner event, so people can consider doing on their own communities. The booklet is in English, with just a few passages in Hebrew and Arabic.
Please e-mail to us a list of people and institutions that you believe should receive by mail a copy of this booklet, with their mailing addresses and other contact information. Make the list as long as you wish, but give us an idea of your priorities. We have raised funds for this first mailing, so there will be no charge to the recipients.
That is the most useful thing you can do for us right now. We would greatly appreciate you giving some thought to this project. Your help would mean a lot to us.
