The Middle East working group is a special interest group (SIG). These are groups within KB which permit members to pursue interests, however, group views do not necessarily represent KB as a whole. The Middle East working group is open to all members of the Congregation with three main goals.
- Create a supportive context for those within the Congregation who want to act in a spirit of connection, reconciliation, peace and justice in the Middle East.
- Gather and share materials that spread the stories of peace activism in Israel and Palestine.
- Work in solidarity with others who seek to promote peace, justice, reconciliation and healing and who actively oppose the demonizing of members and beliefs on both sides of these issues.
To this end we meet monthly to educate ourselves and each other, support and collaborate with others doing this work, and celebrate the courage and commitment of peacemakers in the Middle East and around the world.
