Starting with Olive Trees
Tour participant, Emily Willie, shares her reflections from her recent Boston University tour through MEJDI:
Traveling back to the land of olive trees and za’atar with a Mejdi Tours travel seminar, we spoke with Israelis and Palestinians. From the commander in the Israeli army who designed and constructed the separation wall to a member of a kibbutz near Gaza, a Palestinian shop owner and his family, and a Palestinian conflict transformation organization, we heard many stories of devastating loss and despair. We also heard just as many stories of astounding, vulnerable, courageous beauty.
