Local residents Sarah and Tom Pattison will show slides of their recent trip to Israel and the Palestinian Territory, accompanying four members of Congress on a mission sponsored by the J Street Education Fund, on Tuesday at 7 p.m. Their talk will be in the Social Hall at Congregation Bet Haverim, 1715 Anderson Road in Davis.
The delegation met with Israeli and Palestinian political, security, business and social action leaders, with the goal of educating the members of Congress about the challenges and possibilities of a two-state resolution of the conflict with active U.S. leadership.
This program is free and open to the public, and is sponsored by Israel Peace Alternatives. For more information, visit www.bethaverim.org or call 530-758-0842.
