Is Peace Possible?

In any good relationship the two sides must be able to listen to each others point of view, communicate respectfully and most importantly there must be trust. People must be able to see the “other” as having a valid point of view.

In the Middle East conflict it seems that none of these things are happening.  But how do you motivate someone to see things differently, going against their upbringing, their community and their very faith?

Perhaps one way is to perform life saving surgery on a baby girl named Ibtihaj (meaning “joy”) from the Arab village of Kfar Kassam. She was born with her intestines outside the abdomen in a sac.

Another way might be to quietly set up a hospital next to the border from Syria and smuggle the wounded into Israel for treatment, a very dangerous mission.

Or training Palestinian medical interns and specialist physicians who will return to the PA areas to carry out their work.

Or volunteering to drive 11 year old Rima, diagnosed with Leukemia from Gaza to her bi weekly post bone marrow transplant treatments, as well as hundreds of others.

And just this year 16 children from Gaza and the West Bank regained their hearing thanks to cochlear implant surgery.

Hadassah Hospital is this place and you have the opportunity to help be a “bridge to peace” by joining Hadassah, NH4Israel, William Einhorn Interfaith Education Fund at Etz Hayim Synagogue, Jewish Federation of New Hampshire, Christians and Jews United for Israel and more than 2 dozen other churches, synagogues and organizations across New England in The Run for Healing.

The 5K Run or 3K walk is a fun, affordable, family event to be held Sunday May 7th at 2 P.M. at Pinkerton Academy in Derry, NH. (You can come and have a great time even if you cannot run or walk!). Music, food and dancing to follow. Only $18 for adults and $10 for those under 18 years. The number 18 translates to “life” in Hebrew. Sign up at NH4Israel.org before April 21st for your free t-shirt. See you at the starting line!
