The Easy Way to Peace in the Holy Land

In his TEDxJaffa talk, Dr. Yehuda Stolov presents the belief that peace in the Middle East is really quite simple — if we focus on our commonalities of our faith, rather than that which separates us.

“Jerusalem: War in my Land”

In this compelling 10-minute documentary, award-winning filmmaker Arturo Perez Jr. follows IEA’s efforts to facilitate a peaceful coexistence in the Holy Land.  Although IEA is identified only briefly by name, the film focuses on two of our group coordinators, Salah (Muslim) and Yael (Jewish), and the groups shown are IEA encounters.
