Za’atar: E-voice of the CPC-PIN


Welcome to Za’atar!

The newsletter of the Central Pacific Conference Palestine Israel Network (CPC-PIN).


Za’atar spice is a staple in Palestinian culture and daily life.
 Spreading some dried thyme blended with roasted sesame seeds, ground sumac and a touch of sea salt onto toast takes place in most homes for breakfast. The periodic Za’atar newsletter of the CPC-PIN seeks to become a spicy staple in your connection with justice issues in the Holy Land.Our purposes for Za’atar is to:
  • widen our CPC connections and participation around Palestine Justice work
  • share news, reflections, denominational programs, resources for our Conference
  • announce opportunities for education, travel, partnerships and advocacy on behalf of the Holy Land
