Introduction: Established in 1990, Musalaha is a faith-based organization that teaches, trains, and facilitates reconciliation mainly between Israelis and Palestinians from diverse ethnic and religious backgrounds, and also international groups, based on biblical principles of reconciliation.
Our Work: Musalaha’s definition of reconciliation is twofold. (1) Restoring Individual and Group Relationships – this means constructively engaging with the other side to rebuild trust and reclaiming one’s identity and narrative to be a source of goodness to one’s neighbor. This includes taking concrete steps towards a more just and peaceful environment. (2) Addressing Systematic Injustices – this means dealing with the core issues of the conflict and challenging policies, systems, legal structures, etc. that oppress people and cause an imbalance of power, which damages the ability to reconcile. While working through the process of reconciliation, Musalaha has developed a sustainable process, known as the 6 Stages of Reconciliation and a Curriculum of Reconciliation consisting of 22 chapters. Our work is implemented among women, young adults, youth, children, civil society leaders, Musalaha alumni, and other international settings around the globe.
This position must fulfill one of Musalaha’s strategic objectives: Strengthening and empowering Palestinian women to take an active role in Muslim-Christian reconciliation and leadership. This position must deliver on key behaviors (such as trust) in the purpose and benefit of Musalaha’s reconciliation approach to Muslim-Christian relations in Palestine. This position must aim to further intensify our reconciliation efforts amongst young adults by informing, convincing and guiding our diverse target groups.
