PAWA's educational series program allows our organization to bring various topics of interest to our community. Presented by experts knowledgeable on the topics/issues discussed, these are community conversations that bring us together to learn on topics ranging from Palestinian history and culture to mental health and local social issues such as domestic violence and divorce.

Example educational series include:

The Ethnic Cleansing of Jaffa: Mr. Ahmad Sakkijha and Dr. Said Shehadeh drew on personal experiences to share the history and present ethnic cleansing of Jaffa.

Fighting Depression in Palestine: Dr. Mohammad Herzallah of the Palestinian Neuroscience Initiative and Neuroscientist at Rutgers University, joined us to discuss the realities of depression and mental health concerns in Palestine.

Film Screenings: As part of our ongoing efforts to bring multiple perspectives on the realities of life in Palestine, we screen films. At such screenings, depending on the availability of the creators, we invite the filmmaker(s) and/or director(s) to discuss their work with our community.
