Sponsored by Brit Tzedek v'Shalom, Boston Chapter

Refreshments served

Come hear about a growing movement of brave, young Israeli and
Palestinian peace activists. OneVoice trains people in dialogue
and leadership skills and sets up simultaneous town-hall forums
in Israel and the Palestinian territories. Elad Dunayevsky and
Saed Bilbeisi present their Tel Aviv and Ramallah-based
campaigns to promote civil discourse, renounce violence, and
push politicians to work for resolution of the conflict.

An excerpt from a July 19 letter from Elad and Saed: "There are
rockets flying into Israel's northern towns as far down as Haifa
as we write this, while the people of Gaza are in fear for their
homes and lives, without electricity and running water. People
are suffering, people are dying and people are afraid. It's a
crisis. We are writing to tell you, though, not to give up on
us, or to give up on hope for an end to the conflict ..."
