Keith Simmonds spent two months in Bethlehem in early 2020 as a human rights observer for the World Council of Churches. A United Church of Canada Minister, well versed in the history, past, and present of the Occupation of Palestine, will be leading a four-part series (Wednesdays at 5 p.m.) beginning November 1st that will consider history, trauma, anti-Semitism, Colonialism, the politics of the Empire, and the present-day plight of ordinary citizens of Palestine and Israel.
We will be digging deep within the roots of conflicts between Israel and Palestine!
