Reflecting on the Parliament of the World’s Religions:
Len & Libby Traubman are Co-Founders of the Jewish-Palestinian Living Room Dialogue Group which they started in their living room in San Mateo California in 1992. Today the one-to-one, face-to-face method of conflict resolution modeled by this dialogue group is increasingly looked to globally by educators, researchers, journalists, activists, trainers, and strategists including the U.S. Department of State, which distributes the dialogue group’s instructive films in Africa. You can see more about their activities through the years at Building a Global Community.
They continue to support dialogue and peacemaking in conflict areas around the world. They recently attended the Parliament of the World’s Religions in Salt Lake City, Utah, where they brought together peacemakers from several countries and religious backgrounds. The photos they took, which will serve as the basis of our discussion, are at
