Roots of Peace, an evening with Noor A'wad, a Palestinian activist and speaker, and Rabbi Hanan Schlesinger, is coming to the Unitarian Universalist meetinghouse in Bridgehampton Tuesday night at 7:30.

The two will discuss Roots/Shorashim/Judur, a "Palestinian and Israeli initiative for understanding, nonviolence, and transformation," a release said.

Admission is free, but R.S.V.P.s are required on Eventbrite. The organizers are calling the evening one of "deep listening and learning" and ask those attending to "arrive with an open mind. . . . This is not a forum to take a stand, protest, argue, or rebut."

Sponsors include Canio's Books, Sag Harbor's Christ Church, Gesher | The Bridge Shul, the Hamptons Lutheran Parish, and Ocean Zendo.

Green Giants: Here to Stay?

Long Island’s South Fork, known for beaches, maritime history, and fancy people, is also known for its hedges. Hedge installation and maintenance are big business, and there could be a whole book about hedges, with different varieties popular during different eras. In the last decade, for example, the “green giant,” a now ubiquitous tree, has been placed along property lines throughout the Hamptons. It’s here to stay, and grow, and grow.
