Mark Braverman: Searching for Peace and Justice in Palestine

Mark Braverman is a Jewish American author and activist trained as a clinical psychologist. He is a pioneer in developing innovative approaches to crisis intervention and recovery from trauma. He is now devoted full time to the cause for peace in historic Palestine. He has written two books about the situation in Palestine and is the Executive Director of Kairos USA, founded in response to the 2009 Kairos call of Palestinian Christians.

Braverman spoke at the First Unitarian Church in Portland on February 12, 2024. This program covers that talk which included the context for October 7, 2023 - Jewish history, Zionism and Palestinian resistance; the current furor over anti-semitism; the church and colonialism; and the settler colonialism of the US.

Formerly a fervent Zionist, Braverman explains how he came to change his view of Israel. His is an interesting and important perspective on the tragedy continuing to unfold in Palestine.

The event was recorded by FFVC Field Coordinator PC Peri and produced/edited by Barb Greene with assistance from Dan Handelman.
