Bereaved Israelis and Palestinians Visit Chicago
by Abigail Pickus
"After the first intifada 15 years ago, Amiram and Tilda Goldin felt the only way to a lasting peace was to bring Arabs and Jews together.

"Forum of Grief" leaves some touched, others disturbed at M'kor Shalom
"The evening was about grieving. It was also about peace. In the social hall of a Cherry Hill synagogue, there were few of the 100 guests who were not moved by the heartbreaking stories of Amiram Goldin and Dr. Rihab Essawi and their struggle with grief and conflict in Israel. However, the value of this kind of program to furthering the peace process was not clear to all who attended.."

"We have every reason to despise each other, to be mortal enemies," write Ghazi Brigit and Yitzhak Frankenthal, "One of us is an Israeli whose son was kidnapped and killed ... by Hamas.
