Living Letters solidarity visit to Israel and Palestine

7 to 14 March 2009

A team of ecumenical representatives from around the world visited churches, ecumenical organizations and civil society movements in Israel and Palestine from 7 to 14 March 2009. The visit focused on peace-building initiatives, housing and education issues.

Organized by the World Council of Churches (WCC) as part of the Living Letters initiative, the visit reflects the WCC's focus on the troubled region, where it sees the ongoing presence and witness of churches as crucial in the struggle for a just peace.

Living Letters are small ecumenical teams visiting a country to listen, learn, share approaches and help to confront challenges in order to overcome violence, promote and pray for peace.
