"Let's Talk!"
A New Campaign by Brit Tzedek v'Shalom

Brit Tzedek is pleased to announce the launch of our latest campaign: Let's Talk!: American Jews Call for Urgent U.S. Diplomatic Engagement to Resolve the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict.

With the understanding that all efforts toward peace in the Middle East must actively involve the U.S. Administration, one of the most crucial elements of "Let's Talk!" is the "Call from American Jews to President Bush". It's very important that the President understand that tens of thousands of American Jews support a negotiated, two-state resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict; please add your voice to the call by clicking here.

But Let's Talk! is much more than an effort to urge the Administration to bring Israel and her neighbors together for talks.  It is also an urgent call to American Jews to talk about the critical need to talk about the path to peace within our own Jewish communities; that of American Jews: we must begin to engage in dialogue with our friends and family, with fellow congregants, with rabbis and other community leaders, with our elected officials, and more -- including those with whom we have never discussed the issue or may suspect disagreement.

If we want to achieve peace and security for Israel and her neighbors, all parties to the conflict will need to talk.  If we want the US to bring them together, the American Jewish community will also need to talk - to each other, and to our elected representatives.
