Sunday, January 28 at 10 a.m. -11:30 a.m. at Mount Zion Temple and now via Livestream!
There will be a reception with light refreshments.
The Twin Cities Jewish Community has a chance to meet Gidon Bromberg, co-founder and Israeli Director of EcoPeace Middle East, via videoconference. Rep. Frank Hornstein (D-Minneapolis), a longtime supporter of EcoPeace, will join in conversation with Gidon and field questions from the audience. U.S. Rep. Dean Phillips, Ranking Member of the House Foreign Affairs Middle East, Northern Africa, and Central Asia Subcommittee, is among the guests.
EcoPeace Middle East is a non-governmental organization that was born in the optimism of the Oslo Accords in the mid-1990s and features a one-of-a-kind organizational structure: Three Directors: an Israeli, a Palestinian, and a Jordanian, leading a 12-member board, four representatives for each people. The organization works based on environmental self-interest for all parties that aim to achieve mutual benefits on the ground so that everyone is highly motivated. The organization has an impressive track record of success and global recognition, including twice presenting its work before the UN Security Council.
