ASWR In-Person Gathering: Bethlehem

March 8 @ 4:00 pm 5:00 pm

As part of the And Still We Rise (ASWR) pre-summit events and on International Women’s Day, Churches for Middle East Peace is hosting the first in-person gathering for ASWR in 2024 titled Palestinian Woman Leaders and the Healing Journey at the Bethlehem Bible CollageAt this gathering, registration for the November ASWR summit will be open for the first time. 

Due to the amount of death, detention, and attacks Palestinians have been witnessing since 7 October 2023, this gathering will seek to provide a space for a time of rest. We seek for this space to be one of positive, healing energy. Therefore, we will start with a short yoga session by Eilda Zaghmout to destress and energize, followed by a short video on Palestinian women in leadership roles. Our keynote speaker is Sandrine Hilal, an expert on trauma healing. We will end with a hymn and a short prayer from World Prayer Day. A coffee break will be offered. The event welcomes women of all ages and faith backgrounds.
