CROSSING LINES: Dialogue as entry to relationship and change
Lionel “Len” Traubman has for 25 years published on war and peace from personal experience with Soviets and Americans, Armenians and Azerbaijanis, and Jews and Palestinians. With his wife, Libby, he co-founded the 17-year-old Jewish-Palestinian Living Room Dialogue, preparing for its 207th meeting. He co-produced two documentary films: DIALOGUE AT WASHINGTON HIGH, and PEACEMAKERS: Palestinians & Jews Together at Camp. After 35 years practicing Dentistry for Children in San Francisco and holding positions of leadership in dental organizations, he received the 1998 Distinguished Alumnus Award of the University of California School of Dentistry for whom he gave the school’s 2006 Commencement Address on individual responsibility for transforming enemies into partners at home and globally.
We experienced an authentic Dialogue with it’s new quality of listening-to-learn, for a new spirit in our daily lives and globally.
