International peacemaker George Abdalla will speak about peacemaking in Israel and Palestine at 5:30 p.m. today at Chapel By the Lake.
Abdalla graduated from Earlham College. He then returned to Jerusalem where he works with his family's travel agency that specializes in pilgrimages in Palestine and Israel. He seeks to help people meet one another and increase their awareness of the issues involved, believing that the learning and insight that follows can help lead to peace.
Abdalla is part of the Presbyterian International Peacemakers program that encourages people of all faiths to engage in dialog for peaceful resolutions to local, national and international conflicts.
