Archbishop Elias Chacour
Thursday, September 17, 2015
Elias Chacour is the retired Archibishop of Galilee in the Melkite Greek Catholic Church. Father Chacour is known for his efforts to promote reconciliation between Arabs and Israelis. In Blood Brothers, he tells his own and his people’s story that continues to inform present-day Israel.
He is the founder of the Mar Elias Educational Institutions, K-12 (3,000 Jewish, Christian, Muslim, and Druze faculty and students) in Ibillin.
He describes himself as a Palestinian-Arab-Christian-Israeli.
Come and learn what this complicated identity means, how it is even possible in a time like ours, and what Father Chacour’s vision of peace entails.
Western Theological Seminary promotes hearing, discussing and pondering viewpoints across the spectrum of public opinion on complex issues.
