Historic Catastrophe Remembered
A service of lamentation will take place in Salisbury to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Palestinian Nakba (Catastrophe).
Three-quarters of the population of historical Palestine left their homes – never to return – as a result of the founding of the State of Israel. Millions of their descendants still live in refugee camps across the Middle East.
Sarum Concern for Israel-Palestine will commemorate the date with a reflective service in the chapel of Sarum College in Salisbury’s Cathedral Close at 7.30pm on Tuesday, May 15.
The Rev Jeremy Ames will preside and the service will feature readings from the scriptures of the three Abrahamic faiths – read by members of those groups – as well as inclusive prayers.
There will be a retiring collection and time afterwards to meet each other over light (Palestinian) refreshments.
Tickets – which are free but limited in number – can be obtained by calling 01202 693837 or by mailing firstname.lastname@example.org
