Al-Quds Bard College of Arts and Sciences hosted The Rev’d Canon Dr. Samir J. Habiby, former director of the Presiding Bishop's Fund for World Relief. The reception focused on the unique programs offered through AQB, specifically highlighting its commitment to advancing Palestinian education through promoting the values of tolerance and multiculturalism.
Fr. Habibi was joined by his grandson, who was visiting the area for the first time. His grandson was doing what he called "a journey to find the roots", as Father Habibi was born in Deir al-Assad in Haifa.
