World Week for Peace in Palestine Israel: September 20-26, 2015
"God has broken down the dividing walls"
An initiative of the Palestine Israel Ecumenical Forum (PIEF) of the World Council of Churches
The Palestine Israel Ecumenical Forum (PIEF) of the World Council of Churches invites member churches, faith-based communities, and civil society organizations around the world to join together in 2015 for a week of advocacy and action in support of an end to the illegal occupation of Palestine and a just peace for all in Palestine and Israel. Congregations and individuals around the globe who share the hope of justice shall unite during the week to take peaceful actions, together, to create a common international public witness.
The theme of the week in 2015, to be observed during 20-26 September, is: "God has broken down the dividing walls"
