Hear what it is like in Israel/Palestine as Rabbi David Cooper and member Jim Haber share their experience as part of a Center for Jewish Nonviolence delegation.
The Kehilla Middle East Peace Committee is delighted to welcome back our own Rabbi David Cooper and Kehilla member Jim Haber from their trip to Israel/Palestine where they traveled with a delegation sponsored by our partner organization, the Center for Jewish Nonviolence (www.centerforjewishnonviolence.org). This Summer of 2017 Campaign: End 50 Years of Occupation in which 130 Jewish activists of all ages from around the world convened in the West Bank for 9 days of solidarity activism with Palestinians who are being evicted from their homes and pushed off their land in the name of ongoing settlement expansion and occupation.
CJNV sponsors infrastructure development, agricultural projects, sit-ins and direct action in which their delegations participate.
Following the report back we will engage in a candlelit lament/observance to mark the 50th anniversary of the beginning of the Occupation in conjunction with a big SISO (Save Israel–Stop the Occupation) event occurring a few hours later in Israel/Palestine.
Kiddush refreshments will be provided thanks to Kehilla members Amy Shutkin and Bob Olken.
In Kehilla’s Social Hall.
