Historic 2013 Pilgrimage

Clergy and peace activists from Europe, North America and Asia will meet in Jerusalem on May 14-19, 2013, to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Jerusalem Declaration enacted through the Middle East Peace Initiative (MEPI).

MEPI was launched in 2003 by Rev. Sun Myung Moon, founder of the Universal Peace Federation (UPF), as a Track II diplomacy effort to bring a wide range of interfaith perspectives into the center of the search for peace in the Holy Land. Between 2003 and 2008, more than 12,000 clergy, scholars and government officials from around the world participated in MEPI pilgrimages.
