The second year of the Certificate Program in Peacemaking and Justice in the Palestinian Context is underway! More than thirty students from around the world are enrolled in our online fall semester course. During the first weeks of the course the students have already studied the status of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, a biblical theology of peace through Palestinian eyes, the tradition of sulha – reconciliation – in Palestinian society, Christian and Muslim dialogue and peacemaking, and more.
Enrollment is now open for our spring semester course: Introduction to Peacemaking and Justice in the Palestinian Context 2. Also enrollment is now open for our Summer (May) Intensive which is a two week residential program here in Bethlehem. The Summer Intensive provides the opportunity for students to engage with Palestinian Christian and Muslim peacemakers in Bethlehem, Hebron, Jerusalem, and Nablus.
