Daoud Nassar, Palestinian Christian
Fall 2014 US Tour: Steadfast Witness
Please join us for a presentation by Daoud Nassar, a Palestinian Christian farmer whose family works its 100-acre farm and orchard just outside the town of Bethlehem. It is on this farm that the family members strive to maintain a haven of peace and brother/sisterhood through activities at the Tent of Nations (TON.)
This dynamic peace and local education center was established by the Nassar family in 2000. International visitors, including many Israelis, join together to plant trees, harvest olives and fruit, teach at the Women’s Education Center, lead activities in Youth Summer Camps, and come together in solidarity and shared goals in the pursuit of a just peace through non-violent activities.
In the last seven years, Daoud has traveled to the U.S on 13 occasions, and spoken at nearly 350 sites in over 50 cities and towns in 130 churches, 85 universities/colleges and at 18 conferences. He is an engaging speaker, and his message is a call to both justice and to reconciliation.
