Community Building Program
After four decades of occupation, life in the Palestinian community remains difficult. Increasing limitations on movement and freedom, place the community under a great deal of economic and civic stress.  Through its Community Building Program, Sabeel educates the community on the political situation, broadens the knowledge of work being done to end the conflict, fosters a sense of solidarity, strengthens the communitys capacity to grow spiritually, and helps to collectively address social realities to build a better future for all our children. 


Community Building Program Activities:

  • Open Forum Meetings: Monthly interactive sessions of lectures and panel discussions to develop strategies through Biblical reflection, theological investigation and methods for interpreting the current situation.
  • Field-Trips: Direct experience day-trips which include study and reflection, visits to local organizations and discussion of specific contemporary topics to reconnect residents of different areas separated by political and geographical borders. 
  • Co-sponsored Community Workshops: Half-day and full-day events for the wider Palestinian community held at various venues and developed jointly with church organizations and/or civil institutions.
  • Dialogue for Life Open and respectful discussion about diversity and commonality in the lives of Palestinian Christians living in a predominately Muslim society. By helping the Palestinian community develop a deeper sense of being one people, Sabeel breaks down barriers of ignorance and prejudice, achieves higher levels of understanding, respect and acceptance, and empowers all Palestinians to work together for peace in their homeland.
