      Love Your Neighbor as Yourself - a two-day retreat in Acco

      The Interfaith Encounter Association is pleased to invite you to a
      conference of interfaith dialogue and discussions for Jews, Muslims,
      Christian and Druze people of all ages, genders and walk of life.

      During this exciting conference we will learn about each other's faith and
      tradition, engage in non-political interfaith discussions and begin to
      build an interfaith community in the West-Galilee, a community in which
      the 'otherness' of the other is accepted and respected and harmony
      prevails, in order to promote mutual understanding and respect across
      social divides in the Israeli society.

      The program will include short presentations by:
      - Rabbi Yosef Yahsar, Chief Rabbi of Acco
      - Sheikh Mohammad Kiwan, Imam of Majd El Krum
      - Fr. Dr. George Khoury, President of Greek-Catholic Religious
      - Sheikh Ali Birani, Daliat El Carmel
      Following each of the presentations we will have a longer session of
      discussions in small group, led by experienced facilitators.
      In the evening, if the weather allows, we will walk to El Jazar Mosque
      where we will be received by the Imam and have an open session with the
      local public.
      We hope to be greeted by the leader of the Druze community Sheikh Mowafq
      Tarif and by the Mayor of Acre Shmariahu Biran.

      Time: The seminar will take place on Wednesday and Thursday, 18-19
