to participate  in a large and beautiful Silent Peace Walk

on October 7


New York -  Amidst growing turmoil in the Middle East, a diverse group of volunteers from around the world will come together to participate in a large and moving Silent Peace Walk on Sunday, October 7th around Central Park. People of all nationalities, faiths and backgrounds will walk quietly and single-filed, without flags or signage, in an event of mutual respect and solidarity for peace in the Middle East and across the globe.

Large, silent peace walks have become popular in Israel and Palestine over the last 10 years. A large walk for peace and reconciliation will occur during the same weekend in Bethlehem that will include Israeli Arabs, Israeli Jews, and Palestinians.

"With an increasingly tense situation in the Middle East and so much attention focusing on what divides us, it's seems fitting to have this peace walk in a place where people of all backgrounds live side by side in harmony," said Gal Romano, an Israeli organizing committee volunteer for the Peace Walk. "These silent walks demonstrate the reality of respect and co-existence. The Peace Walk will be an expression and reminder of the goodwill among us, and walking proof that peace is very much possible."

With over 8 million people living in New York City, it is one of the most densely populated and ethnically and religiously diverse cities in the world. Home to over 100 ethnic groups, including several million Muslims and Jews, the walk is intended to demonstrate that people of all faiths and origins can live peacefully side by side.

"We encourage everyone to join us in this very moving, powerful event and the first walk of its kind in the U.S.," said Omar Hassan, a Muslim organizing committee volunteer for the Peace Walk. "Whether people stay for a short time or throughout the whole event, all communities are welcome."

The event will begin with an opening ceremony at 3PM at the New York Academy of Science, with opening speeches by community leaders including Jack Kornfield, one of the leading Buddhist teachers in America, and Dr. Stephen Fulder, Israeli founder of Middleway, a Palestinian Israeli peace organization that has been organizing large silent peace walks in Israel and Palestine for more than 10 years. Registration is required for the ceremony.

Following the opening speeches, the Peace Walk will move around Central Park starting at 4PM (at 5th Avenue and 103rd Street), allowing participants to join-in along the way. At the conclusion of the walk, experienced facilitators will guide closing listening circles. The event is free and open to the public.
