Dr. Chen Alon – actor, facilitator, theater director and teacher – has been at the forefront of restorative justice programs in Israel and Palestine for over a decade. A lecturer in the Department of Theater Arts at Tel Aviv University and a co-founder of Combatants for Peace – a movement of Jewish Israelis and Palestinians promoting nonviolence between these two communities – Alon served for four years in the Israeli military and eleven years in the reserves before refusing to serve in the occupied Palestinian Territories, which resulted in prison time. Alon is committed to moving fractured communities toward positive transformation.
