The 3rd Annual Voices From the Holy Land 2017 Film Series explores the complex, difficult, and emotional issues that have been preventing peace in the Holy Land for over three generations.  This series is supported by a coalition of thirty-three interfaith (Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Unitarian) organizations in the Washington D.C. area.  This offering includes award winning documentary films and associated audience discussions that seek to inform the audience that:


  • Israel-Palestine history is often misunderstood
  • Life under occupation is difficult and unfair
  • Issues of justice and human-rights in Israel-Palestine are in the same continuum of the Civil-Rights struggles in our own country
  • Many Israelis know and understand that continued occupation is not the solution
  • Small groups of Israelis and Palestinians are coming together to promote peaceful solutions
  • US policies and US media have affected our understanding of the current “conflict”
  • There still reason to hope
