Join us Thursday for a Presentation and Discussion on Israel-Palestine
Dear Friends of CJPME,
Please join us this Thursday, June 21, at 7:00 p.m., as CJPME-Victoria welcomes Rev. Dale Perkins for a talk entitled, A Personal Encounter with Palestinian/Israeli Reality. The talk will be held as follows:
A Q&A session as well as informal conversation time will follow. It is expected that the UCC Middle East Working Group report on Israel-Palestine will also be discussed. The report recommended that the UCC boycott products from Israeli settlements. CJPME met with the UCC Working Group in 2011, and applauded the recent report of the UCC Middle East Working Group.
Looking forward to having you join us.
