Israel trip for Jews, Muslims and Christians

By Marcus Dysch, July 22, 2010

An interfaith group is encouraging Jews, Christians and Muslims to join a study trip to Israel examining ways to bring peace to the Middle East.

St Ethelburga's Centre for Reconciliation and Peace is a Christian-led independent charity in east London.

It will run the eight-day "study and encounter" tour of Israel in November. Participants will be expected to work together to investigate how to create productive dialogue between Israelis and Palestinians.

Justine Huxley, interfaith projects co-ordinator, said: "Our intention is to select a very diverse group of individuals who have a strong connection to the issue as well as an interest in dialogue processes."

The charity will fund the trip for successful applicants.
