    Facilitators Libby and Len Traubman co-founded the 17-year-old Jewish-Palestinian Living Room Dialogue of San Mateo, California, featured on CNN. They co-produced two films: DIALOGUE AT WASHINGTON HIGH, and PEACEMAKERS: Palestinians & Jews Together at Camp.They offer this experience that has recently meant so much to diverse school students and other citizens including in Houston, Charlotte, and Cleveland, where the Traubmans were on the Design Team of the new National Peace Academy.
    Roots of this Dialogue are in South African interracial, interreligious story- and meal-sharing during apartheid 1980s, and in early 1990s Black-White meal-sharing in San Mateo homes.
