      Creation in Judaism, Christianity and Islam


      A joint retreat of 

      Hope Flower School and Interfaith Encounter Association

      The Interfaith Encounter Association (IEA) is pleased to invite you to the 14th conference of interfaith dialogue and discussions for Israelis and Palestinians, co-organized by IEA with the Hope Flower School. After the significant success of the previous conferences, we are very excited to continue the process of true peace-building through deep and sincere interfaith dialogue.
      This 14th retreat has a few new characteristics:
      a.      This retreat has no outside funding! When the grants of the European Union, UNESCO and the US Embassy (for which we are for ever very grateful) ended we thought at first that we will be forced to put this process on hold until further funds are secured. However, thanks to our ability to use the small guest house of the Hope Flowers School, we believe that we can sustain the process on a lower scale until further funds are secured.
      b.      One following result is that, unfortunately, we will not be able to subsidize participants who find it challenging to pay the participation fee.
      c.       Another following result is that all of us who participate will sign a statement that we take part in this program on our own responsibility.
      d.      On the other hand I want to emphasize that the Hope Flowers School is in area C (i.e. fully controlled by Israel) and that I personally have visited there numerous times in the last months and always felt very safe. 
      During the conference we will engage in non-political interfaith discussions designed to help participants better know "the other" in his/her humanity, which we believe can make a substantial contribution to human peace among the two peoples and three faiths that share this Holy Land. We will also sing together religious and cultural songs and have time for spontaneous conversations.
      Time:     From Thursday 
      15:00pm (leaving Jerusalem),
