I was searching for a home for my sincere and heartfelt belief that it was POSSIBLE for peace between Israelis and Palestinians. Through wonderful friends I was introduced to Brit Tzedek v’Shalom. I attended my first meeting (of countless others to follow) in the New Haven, CT JCC. I met wonderful people with hopeful hearts as well as an enthusiasm for action that I had not encountered in my other affiliations, political or otherwise.
We just believed that what appeared to be impossible WAS possible! It was through Brit Tzedek v’Shalom that I had the honor of meeting and speaking with Naomi Chazan, Jim Zogby and Stephen Cohen.
To that end I see J Street as the appropriate “vehicle” to carry our message of hope and peace for us, for Israel and for future generations.
