An Arab Palestinian Christian who is a citizen of Israel, Archbishop Chacour grew up walking the hillsides where Jesus lived, where Jesus taught “Blessed are the Peacemakers.”
Archbishop Chacour has worked tirelessly for reconciliation and peace in the Middle East, especially by building high-quality schools—preschool through college—in the Galileean village of Ibillin, where the students and faculty include Christians, Muslims, Jews, and Druze.
More than 50% of the students are girls.
He is a three-time nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize, and winner of the World Methodist Peace Award, the Niwano Peace Prize, and was Rotary’s Man of the Year in Israel in 2000.
He has written 2 books available in English, Blood Brothers and We Belong to the Land: the Story of a Palestinian Israeli who Lives for Peace and Reconciliation.
(Both books will be available for signing at the event, as well as a new book about Father Chacour for children titled Blessed Are the Peacemakers.)
A free-will offering will be received to support the Peace-Building work of Archbishop Chacour.
