Two mayors, two communities, two peoples

By Dan Fleshler | June 3, 2011

If you are in New York City on Tuesday evening, June 14th, this event, “Two Mayors, Two Communities, Two Peoples: Building Bridges in the Middle East” is worth checking out. It is at Ansche Chesed, 251 West 100th Street, at 7:30 PM.

Nazia Masrawa is the mayor of the Arab Israeli town of Kfar Qara. Chaim Gaash is the mayor of the nearby Jewish Israeli town of Pardes Hanna-Karkur. Until recently, the two communities had little to do with each other. Now, thanks to a program started by Givat Haviva, they are putting aside their differences and working together on a host of shared problems.

It is co-sponsored by the Givat Haviva Educational Foundation, Congregation Ansche Chesed, the Interfaith Center of New York and the Advent Lutheran Church.

    Great work. Under the noise of ideology and contention, mutual humanization.

    Maybe this is the way it will have to start–from the bottom up.

    I glanced at the Givat Haviva website. It seems like a good group. The bottom up approach can’t be worse than any of the top down attempts, which have been miserable failures so far.
