Dr. Jeff Halper, Coordinating Director of Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions (ICAHD) will speak Wednesday July 9 at 7:30 pm
Oakhurst Baptist Church
222 East Lake Drive, Decatur, GA 30030
Jeff is an American Israeli who has been living and working in Israel on issues of home demolitions for almost 20 years. He has written several books and takes groups on tours through Jerusalem and the West Bank to understand settlement activity and its impacts as well as Palestinian home demolitions and its long-lasting impacts.
ICAHD has rebuilt many Palestinian homes with the help of other Israeli Jews, American Jews and other internationals who are invested in a justice and peace between Israel/Palestine. You can find more information about him and the organization at http://icahdusa.org/about/jeff-halper/.
Jeff will speak about home demolitions and how he transformed over time to the nonviolent commitment of boycott, divestments, and sanctions. The program is co-sponsored by Kairos Mission Group at Oakhurst Baptist Church, Jewish Voice for Peace, Congregation Bet Haverim, and Joining Hands for Justice in Israel and Palestine.
