“The Wall Between” is a new book written by two Ontario authors, a Palestinian and a Jew. Raja Khouri is a human rights consultant, a co-founder of the Canadian Arab/Jewish Leadership Dialogue Group, founding president of the Canadian Arab Institute and a former 10-year commissioner with the Ontario Human Rights Commission. Jeffrey Wilkinson holds a doctorate in Education from the University of Toronto and works actively on issues relating to trauma and the Israel/Palestine struggle.

While we are seeing increasing polarisation on the issue of Israel and Palestine, Jeffrey and Raja offer another approach: an approach based on sharing our stories with each, opening our hearts and facing the complex history that brought us to where we are.

During this time of great sorrow and loss for both communities, we need spaces to come together to listen and learn from each other. There will be no flags or placards at this event. Just a peaceful Sunday afternoon discussion, led by two courageous authors who have taken the time to learn from each other.
