This Memorial Day, communities across the US will gather to share in Tel Aviv's annual Israeli-Palestinian Memorial Day Ceremony. For the past twelve years, thousands of Israelis and Palestinians have stood together to acknowledge the pain and the aspirations of those living on the "other side" and strive to prevent the next wave of violence.

Please join us for a special memorial event rooted in the values of hope, empathy, and non-violence. We will view footage of that day's Israeli-Palestinian Memorial Day Ceremony in Tel Aviv, and sing, reflect, and renew the call to end the conflict in a just and peaceful way. 

This event is part of New Israel Fund's campaign, 50 Years of Occupation: Time to Take a Stand. The Occupation is an enormous problem, and there is no chance it will be addressed if it is pushed out of view. Supporting Israel today means supporting those Israelis committed to keeping the Occupation on the public agenda and to pressing for a better future.
