Jerusalem Conference on Forgiveness for Peace

The Jerusalem Conference on Forgiveness for Peacescheduled for July 12-13, 2017is the first ever forgiveness conference to be held in the Middle East. It is being organized by Dr. Robert Enright, whom Time magazine called “the forgiveness trailblazer,” and an international world-peace-2team of religious and secular leaders.

Day 1 of this 2-day conference will include speakers from Judaism, Christianity, and Islam discussing what it means to forgive in each of those religious traditions, the importance of forgiveness, and how to better interact with others through forgiveness. Internationally-known speakers include Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, this year’s recipient of the Templeton Prize, and Dr. Mustafa Ceric, Grand Mufti Emeritus of Bosnia.

Day 2 will help us learn how to better understand what forgiveness education is and how to bring forgiveness to our children and adolescents in school and at home. Speakers include educators from Northern Ireland, events-9Greece, Israel, Lebanon and the United States.

The conference is open to all who wish to obtain a deeper understanding of forgiveness across the three Abrahamic faiths and who have an interest in bringing forgiveness to the home, school, and other community organizations.

Early Bird Registration is now available at $150.00 but ends October 31, 2016. For more information or to register, click the link below.

    I wish the Christian community was at the forefront of this movement. Nevertheless, people are learning about forgiveness and Dr. Enright is meeting a great need. I look forward to hearing about all the talks from the different areas and faiths and the overall success of the conference.

      I, too, hope for great success with this conference in Jerusalem. It seems to be unique and of great importance. I hope there is both an international and local presence in the 2-day event. Let us get the word out to encourage people across the whole world to attend.
