Jane and Max Carter will be the co-leaders of a June 23 to July 11 trip to Palestine and Israel sponsored by Friends United Meeting. Accommodations will mostly be at the Ramallah Friends School, where light volunteer work of painting, cleaning, and landscaping will be done. Speakers from both Israel and the Palestinian Territories will share personally about the situation, and further interaction will include meals in the homes of families whose children have attended Guilford College. Travel will include the usual religious and historical sites of the region, with visits to Jerusalem, Bethlehem, the Galilee, and the Jordan Valley. A special focus will be on the impact of the military occupation on the indigenous Palestinian Christian community.
