Finding Solutions Together
Posted: 01 Mar 1989

A “harmonious interfaith effort” at Harvard University has brought together managers of health and social service programs from Egypt, Israel, Jordan, and Palestine. The Middle East Educational Fellowship Program offers participants one year of study leading to a Master in Public Administration degree.

John Cardinal O’Connor, president of Catholic Near East Welfare Association and chairman of this program, also said: “We desperately need people of all political and religious persuasions who are dedicated to alleviating human misery in the Middle East.” He added, “If we can bring Jews, Muslims, and Christians together in this uniquely pluralistic context, have them live and work together - who knows what we may do in the long range.”
