Voices Across the Divide

Promotional photo

Voices Across the Divide was produced and narrated by Alice Rothchild, an American Jew who relates her personal change of mind and heart as she explores Palestinians’ experiences of losses and injustices. In telling these stories, her aim is to help build a just peace for all the people of Israel and Palestine.

This event observes the City of Greenbelt’s Peace Month.

Voices Across the Divide was a co-winner of the 2013 Audience Award at the Boston Palestine Film Festival.

Presenters and leaders of audience discussion will be coming from two organizations:

  • Jewish Voice for Peace of DC Metro area will be represented by Shelley Fudge, who knows Alice Rothchild as a fellow JVP activist, and Jamal Najjab, whose family comes from a West Bank village.
  • Friends Committee on National Legislation, represented by Wardah Khalid, their Peace Fellow for Middle East Policy.
