Join us for a captivating conversation with the distinguished peacebuilder, responsible travel pioneer, cultural educator, and inspiring speaker Aziz Abu Sarah. In partnership with Small Giants, our conversation will revolve around the pursuit of peace, not only in the Middle East but across the globe, and the remarkable work Aziz has dedicated himself to for the past two decades.

Together, we will explore the intricate themes of dual narratives, transcending boundaries, and how travel serves as a conduit for connection and understanding. To kick off the evening, we’ll be treated to a soulful musical performance by Shai Shriki.

We invite you to join us with an open heart, an open mind, and a commitment to peace as we embark on this conversation, purposefully designed to nurture connections rather than divisions.
