Julia Fisher talks to Alon Grimberg – This week’s edition of The Olive Tree finds us in a rural part of central Israel talking to Alon Grimberg. Alon is German – he was born in Germany but, as you will hear, he decided as a young man that he wanted to explore Israel. Today, several years later, he is married to Rajaa, an Arab Christian, and together they are involved in an organisation called Lech L’cha which trains young believers, both Jews and Arabs, to be the leaders of tomorrow. In this programme, Alon describes his early life and how he came to live in Israel.
Our aim is to build bridges… To build bridges of understanding and support, in a spirit of reconciliation, between believers (both Jewish and Arab) in the Holy Land (Israel and the Palestinian Areas) and Christians worldwide.
