This year, communities across the US will gather to honor the annual Israeli-Palestinian Memorial Day Ceremony. For the past thirteen years, thousands of Israelis and Palestinians have stood each year to acknowledge the pain of those living on the “other side” and envision a better future together.
Join us for a special memorial event based upon the values of recognition, hope, solidarity, and non-violence, featuring Elik Elhanan and Sulaiman al-Khatib of Combatants for Peace. We will view inspirational footage of the Israeli-Palestinian Memorial Day Ceremony taking place on the same day in Israel, sing, reflect, and renew our community's call to end the conflict in a just and peaceful way.
