Your new field of activity
Kairos Palestine is an initiative of ecumenically united representatives of the Christian churches of Palestine and Israel. As the only ecumenical movement in Palestine, Kairos Palestine is committed to a just peace in Palestine and Israel, based on theological principles. Its aim is to prevent the outbreak of conflicts and to contribute to peaceful conflict resolution and peace-keeping through post-conflict peace-building measures.
With their theological-pastoral-political document "Kairos Palestine: A Moment of Truth" the authors call on academic theologians, clergy, laymen, their communities as well as Palestinian and Israeli society to find a peaceful solution to the Middle East conflict. To this end they call for the international solidarity of the Christian sister churches of the world.
You will contribute to peace-building in the Middle East conflict by supporting Kairos Palestine in the development, planning and implementation of a dynamic advocacy strategy at home and abroad, with a focus on Europe.
