Boston Israeli-Palestinian Alternative Memorial Day

Date & Time April 30, 2017 7:30am
Crane Room in Paige Hall, 12 Upper Campus Road, Medford

Please join J Street U at Tufts in marking the annual Israeli-Palestinian memorial day ceremony, hosted each year in Tel Aviv by Combatants for Peace and the Parents Circle and this year marked by their supporters in cities worldwide. For the past twelve years, this ceremony has offered an opportunity to move beyond nationalistic narratives of loss traditionally offered on Israel's memorial day and focus on sharing the deep pain and suffering that conflict and occupation inflict on all involved.

Please gather with us as we view footage of the ceremony taking place earlier in Tel Aviv, share our own stories of pain and hope, and recommit ourselves to working toward an end to occupation and violence.

All local community members are welcome.

Co-sponsored by American Friends of the Parents Circle-Families Forum, Combatants for Peace, and Tufts NIMEP.
