CRDC Senior Research Associate Hind Kabawat orchestrates unprecedented event with CRDC Director Rabbi/Dr. Marc Gopin at Assad library in Damascus

Here is the actual footage of one of our most inspiring acts of citizen diplomacy.  It was the first public dialogue in Syria on peace in the Middle East in over forty years. This historic event was broadcast on the major TV outlets of Syria, as well as throughout the Arab world through Al Jazeera and Al Arabiya. It is a true testament to what a unique pair of committed peacemakers, Arab and Jewish, can do with perseverance, care and, of course, a little bit of risk. Watch the encouraging event here.
