The Well QA Podcast

Jun 3, 2021

This is the first of a series of conversations about Israel and Palestine on The Well QA Podcast.  On this episode we talk with Marcie Lenk and Mohammad Darawshe about the recent violence and their hopes for future peace.

Marcie Lenk is the former Director of the Shalom Hartman Institute’s Christian leadership programs.  Marcie has taught Early Christianity, Hebrew Bible, and Rabbinic Literature at institutions such as Boston University and City College of New York, as well as at Jewish and Christian seminaries in Israel and the United States.  In addition to teaching, she organizes programs for Christian academics, church leaders, and theology students to give them access to the different Jewish traditions and views of modern Israel.

Mohammad Darawshe is a Shalom Hartman Institute faculty member and Director of Planning, Equality and Shared Society at Givat Haviva Educational Center.  He was the recipient ot the Peacemakers Award from the Catholic Theological Union, and the Peace and Security Award of the World Association of NGO’s, and was Leadership Fellow at the New Israel Fund.

It's amazing to hear Mohammad and Marcie work together in the midst of very real struggle.  Thank you to both of them for being on The Well QA Podcast!
