The relationship between Palestine and Israel will be the subject of a series of events and talks at Lichfield Cathedral this weekend.
Leading experts will explore the different issues from October 7 to 9.
The Very Revd Adrian Dorber, Dean of Lichfield, said: “The coming of the state of Israel led to immediate conflict and the hostility of surrounding Arab states.
“Since 1948 the question of how Israelis and Palestinians can equitably and honourably share the land and live in mutual peace and security remains unsettled. It has led to profound hurt, huge anxiety, repeated war and insecurity for Israelis and Palestinians alike.
“This weekend of events will explore how a path to lasting peace and security can be found, what we in the UK need to understand about the conflict and what the prospects are for a just peace.”
Events will be held at Lichfield Cathedral and Wade Street Church. For more details visit www.lichfield-cathedral.org.
