EAPPI: Access to Worship, Easter
The Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in #Palestine and #Israel released a report on access to holy places during the Easter season.
Jerusalem is a spiritual city for the three monotheistic religions, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. It is also the center of Palestinian identity and source of its cultural, historical, economic and social life. Despite international calls for Jerusalem to be a shared city among all of these religions, Palestinian Christians still face restrictions and limitations on access, which inhibit them from celebrating Easter in the Holy City.
This is a joint report of the Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel (EAPPI) and the Jerusalem Inter-Church Centre (JIC). EAPPI and JIC are programmes of the World Council of Churches.
