JULY WEBINAR – NORA CARMI
Please join us this Saturday, 16 July at 5.00pm, for a fascinating hour with Palestinian advocate, Norma Arsenian-Carmi.
Nora was born in Jerusalem, Palestine, a few months before the establishment of Israel in 1948. Since 1967, she has been a permanent resident of East Jerusalem. Conflict is something she is very familiar with due to her Armenian heritage. Her family survived the genocide of 1915. Nora has served as a community builder in various religious and civil society circles. She worked with the YWCA, Sabeel Liberation Theology Center, and Kairos Palestine for more than 37 years. She remains closely connected with the World Council of Churches (WCC) assemblies and events, and participates in several global church involvements.
