A SPECIAL Palm Sunday event will be held at Bradford Cathedral featuring inspirational stories from one of the most deeply conflicted parts of the world.

'Jesus Weeps for Peace' will feature Hedva Haymov and Shireen Awaad. Hedva is a Messianic Believer living on the Golan Heights in Israel, while Shireen is a Palestinian Christian living behind the Wall in the West Bank.

The women head up the Musalaha Women's Programme in Israel and Palestine.

Alongside their speech there will be a welcome from Canon Paul of Bradford Cathedral and an

introduction by John Drake of Musalaha UK. There will also be opportunities for prayer and

worship, readings and songs, and a short film. The event will conclude with a Q&A session with

Hedva and Shireen, and the opportunity to find out more about Musalaha, sign-up for further

information and look at a selection of books available to purchase.

Canon Gordon Dey said: "The reconciliation work of Musalaha is a real 'light in the darkness' in the Holy Land, as Jews, Muslims and Christians are encouraged to listen to each other's stories, and understand each other's concerns.

"Hedva and Shireen will help us see the peace making potential of the varied Christian community in Israel and Palestine, for which Jesus wept when he approached Jerusalem."'

‘Jesus Weeps for Peace’ takes place on Sunday, April 14, at 6pm at Bradford Cathedral, with

refreshments from 5:30pm. Entry is free and your place can be reserved at bradfordcathedral.eventbrite.com.
