May Dialogue: Women of Peace

On Sunday, May 20th from 2:00 to 4:30 p.m. at Adat Shalom Reconstructionist Congregation, 7727 Persimmon Tree Lane, Bethesda, MD, JIDS will be sponsoring a session entitled “Moving Forward: Women of Peace.” Please note that the event is starting at 2:00 rather than our normal 2:30 starting time.
This session will be moderated by Kay Halpern and led by Barbara Altman and Andra Baylus. It will address a fascinating new project to gather stories, insights and reflections, some of them surprising, from Jews, Palestinians, and other Muslims and Christians. All of the women who are leading this session are active members of a very special organization called Yes We Can — Middle East Peace, or “Yes-MEP.” You will hear some of the material they have generated, where it is leading, and how you can participate. As always at JIDS events, there will be time for questions, sharing and (hopefully) small group discussions. And, of course, food
