Our evening will start with some delicious Lebanese food and a presentation of the history of the traditional Palestinian dabke dance, followed by a special performance AND a private lesson for the bravest of our chapter members!
Tickets are $10 and all proceeds go directly to The Philos Project’s Gaza Exodus campaign to help Christian Palestinians from Gaza be reunited with their families in the West Bank.
More about Gaza Exodus:
Christians have been living in the Holy Land since the time of Jesus. But today, especially in the Gaza Strip, Palestinian Christians are suffering and disappearing due to dire humanitarian circumstances and radical Islamist ideology popularized after the Hamas takeover in 2007. With less than 1,000 Christians left in Gaza, many are seeking a new home in the West Bank. Due to certain political constraints, only a few have made it out while leaving the rest of their families behind. The Philos Project is here to help.
By Christmas this year, and with the help of our Palestinian Christian Advocacy Fellow Khalil Sayegh. The Philos Project will raise $20,000 USD to reunite and support the relocation, moving and temporary living expenses of four different Gazan Christian families. With your help, we can bring these families together and change their lives forever.
