Congregation Chaverim, Brit Tzedek v'Shalom to host peace delegates

Members of the Parents' Circle, a group of Israelis who have lost family members in Mideast violence, yet still believe that peace with the Palestinians is possible, will speak in Tucson later this month.

The Parents' Circle was founded in 1994 by Israelis Yitzak Frankenthal and Ronnie Hirschenshon after their 19-year-old sons were killed during their tours as IDF solders. The group represents 190 Israeli families.

In recent years, working with families in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, the group established a partnership organization known as the Israeli and Palestinian Bereaved Families' Forum for Peace.

The Tucson talk, part of a 14-city U.S. tour by both organizations, will be held Monday Oct. 14, 7:30 p.m. at Congregation Chaverim.

Speakers will include Marha Litvak, a resident of Kibbutz Negba, whose father was killed prior to her birth, and who lost a brother in 1970; Dr. Adel Misk, a Palestinian neuro-surgeon who lost his father in 1993; and Tarek Issami, mayor of a village in the West Bank, who lost his son in 1994.

The event is sponsored by Chaverim and the Tucson chapter of Brit Tzedek v'Shalom (Jewish Alliance for Justice and Peace).

Brit Tzedek v'Shalom is "a new national organization of American Jews with deep and abiding connections to Israel, who are working to secure a just and lasting peace between Israel and the Palestinian people through Israel's return to 1967 borders and the creation of a viable Palestinian state alongside Israel," says Dina Afek, co-founder of the local chapter. One of the national group's founding board members, former Israeli Knesset member Marcia Freedman, says the group wants to mobilize what she sees as "the vast majority of American Jews" who support Israel, but are "uncomfortable with the current government and its policies."
