The Middle East Collaborative is a group of PYM Friends with a special concern for the Middle East. Some members of the collaborative have lived or travelled in the Middle East. Others have not but share a concern for the peoples of the region. The Collaborative has sponsored workshops at PYM sessions, endorsed humanitarian initiatives, and offered advice to PYM leadership. We are attentive to the work of Friends related to the region, including that of the American Friends Service Committee, the Friends Committee on National Legislation, Ramallah Friends Schools, and Ramallah Monthly Meeting. We seek to support Friends’ work as way opens for us. The Collaborative meets semi-monthly throughout the year and welcomes participation by all concerned Friends.
