Community Gathering: Responding to the Situation in Israel and Gaza
May 23 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
As violence engulfing Jews and Palestinians in Israel, Gaza, and the West Bank continues, it is important for us to gather as a diverse, progressive Jewish community – both to learn what action we can take and to be together in the pain of this time. Ben Murane, Executive Director of the New Israel Fund of Canada, will speak about work on the ground in Israel to reject extremism and to repair trust between Jewish and Arab citizens of Israel. Rabbi Miriam will facilitate structured opportunities for our questions, values, feelings and commitments. The two threads together aim to give us the clarity, community support and resilient capacity to choose wise action, connection and engagement.
The DJC is committed to being a Third Space in which we can safely and bravely surface conflicting values, examine our own assumptions and experiences, and learn from one another.
You are also invited to join the DJC in a national Virtual Vigil against Violence between Jews and Palestinians
