Encinitas, CA, December 02, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- The Grauer School will host a visit by the Jerusalem Peacemakers Eliyahu McLean and Sheik Ghassan Manasra during the film screening of “Globalized Soul” on Tuesday, December 6, 2011 beginning at 6:30 pm on the campus located at 1500 S. El Camino Real in Encinitas; the event is free and open to the public and is co-hosted by the Center for Global Awareness. Filmed in Australia, India, Israel, Morocco, Mexico, Turkey and the US, the motion picture explores the oneness at the center of the diversity of the world's religions. The one-hour documentary chronicles the worldwide phenomenon of "interreligious or interfaith dialogue," the distinctive spiritual journey of the 21st century. McLean is the Director of the Jerusalem Peacemakers, a network of religious leaders and grassroots peace-builders in the Jerusalem and the Holy Land. Manasra is the Director of the Islamic Cultural Center in Nazareth, a center promoting tolerance and interfaith dialog.
According to Grauer School Outreach Coordinator Bill Harman, “The Grauer School has a unique connection to the Jerusalem Peacemakers dating back to 2008. It was during a Grauer School Expedition that year when we were first introduced to the organization while touring Jerusalem and Bethlehem. We were then reunited with members of the Peacemakers team during the 2010 Parliament of World Religions that took place in Melbourne, Australia. On this momentous occasion, several of the Grauer students in our delegation were able to reconnect with Peacemakers they met previously in Jerusalem. This upcoming visit to our campus by the Peacemakers is a testament to the common thread that connects students with the worldwide cultural and spiritual community --- our Grauer Expeditionary program unites people of all faiths and diversified cultures to enhance tolerance and education on a global level. We look forward to screening this film that demonstrates what is eternal about human nature and paths to future survival.”
