Learn more about Israel and Palestine from a member of our conference

Dee Poujade, a member of Portland First UMC, has recently spent three months in Palestine and Israel with the Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel. She will be at the Annual Conference session in Boise, and she would like to talk to as many people as possible about the realities of life there. You can learn more about Dee and her experiences by reading her blog here. You can also contact Dee through her blog.

MFSA is sponsoring legislation to form a committee to study how we can impact the situation there. If you will be attending the conference session, please become as informed as you can.
