  Dr. Eyad el Sarraj (1943-2013) was the first psychiatrist in the Gaza  
Strip and a renowned campaigner for peace with justice who recognized the  
vital connection between mental health and human rights. The founder in 1990  
of the Gaza Community Mental Health Programme (GCMHP), he received the  
first human rights award given by the US Physicians for Human Rights, among  
many other international honors. His courage, decency, independence of mind,  
and vision of a better world made him a beacon of moral conscience and hope  
for those Israelis seeking peace with Palestinians and Palestinians  
struggling with both the occupation and their own ruinous political  
divisions.   Nearly a year after his death on December 17, 2013,  
“Instilling Hope in Gaza” will examine the conditions in the Gaza Strip  
that shaped his life and work, how the Gaza Community Mental Health  
Programme is today forging ahead with his work, and what more can be done to  
build on his legacy in the years ahead.   Suggested donation at the door:  
$10 - or more! Funds will support the work of the Gaza Community Mental  
Health Programme.   *Host*: The Middle East Education Group at First Parish  
Cambridge. *Co-sponsors:* American Friends Service Committee - New England  
Region, Boston Coalition  for Palestinian Rights, Grassroots International,  
Harvard School of Public Health, Jewish Voice for Peace - Boston, Physicians  
for Human Rights, United for Justice with Peace.
United for Justice with Peace [1] is a coalition of peace and justice  
organizations and community peace groups in the Greater Boston region. The  
UJP Coalition, formed after September 11th, seeks global peace through social
