Beth Hamidrash Hagadol Synagogue, St Matthew's Church, and St Martin’s Church invite you to hear the incredible stories of two bereaved parents who promote reconciliation as an alternative to revenge.
In March 2002, Robi Damelin’s son, David, was shot by a Palestinian sniper, he was 28 years old. In January 2007, Bassam Aramin's 10-year-old daughter, Abir, was shot by an Israeli soldier. As a result of their experiences, Robi and Bassam joined The Parents Circle – Families Forum, which is renowned for its work to promote peace and reconciliation between Israelis and Palestinians.
Hear them speak to an interfaith audience in North Leeds on the 14th November.
