In 1989 an ad hoc committee was formed to implement, on a practical level, a Palestinian Liberation Theology. On a pastoral level, some of the Palestinian clergy were listening to the cries of the people at the grassroots. They felt the need to respond not only to their physical sufferings, but also to the way these sufferings were being aggravated by the religious argument in the political conflict.

IRD Activities

  • Unity in the Community

    Sabeel will focus on strengthening the local community in 3 areas: Ecumenical (Christian – Christian), Christian – Muslim, and amongst Israeli Arabs and Jews. The first focus will be a continuation of the work that Sabeel has begun within the Christian denominations, attempting to strengthen the bonds and cooperation amongst the various communities. The Christian-Muslim interfaith focus will be in cooperation with the Al-Liqa Center in Bethlehem and will work towards interfaith dialogue and understanding, in addition to a faith-based ideology and practice of non-violence. The third area will focus on issues that Palestinians, both Christian and Muslim, face as citizens of Israel and will seek to work with Israeli Jews in challenging policies that undermine equality and human rights.
