Little Town of Bethlehem University Tour

There is no shortage of opinions, emotions, and actions regarding finding “peace in the Middle East.” While some are familiar with the issue, some personally impacted by the conflict, many more are unaware, uninformed, and unconcerned about this critical global issue. This fall a ground breaking film, Little Town of Bethlehem will share the gripping story of a Palestinian Muslim, a Palestinian Christian, and an Israeli Jew—born into violence and willing to risk everything to bring an end to violence in their lifetime.

The protagonists will be part of a university tour discussing the non-violent peace movement. The lecture series includes Boston College, George Washington University, Georgetown, University of Rhode Island, The National Cathedral, De Paul University and UC Berkley.
More about the film:

Yonatan Shapira is an Israeli Jew whose grandparents were Zionist settlers who witnessed the birth of the Israeli nation. Today he is an outspoken advocate for the non-violent peace movement, both in his homeland and abroad.
