The world turned its eyes on Israel/Palestine as violence between Hamas and Israel grew to heights unseen for nearly seven years in mid-May. The escalation did not come unannounced or unexpected however.

What’s happening in Jerusalem? Why are these families facing possible removal from their homes? And why are these small neighborhoods at the center of what have become world-shaping events? Join us to hear from local activists and grassroots leaders in Jerusalem as they help us see beyond the headlines to the sources of conflict below.
