Join Jewish Voice for Peace – Boston, American Jews for a Just Peace - Boston, and the Boston Workmen's Circle Center for Jewish Culture and Social Justice for a commemorative ceremony to reflect on the one-year anniversary of Israel’s most recent and most lethal assault on the captive population of Gaza. With words, art, and song, we will rededicate ourselves to the movement for justice in Palestine.
“Operation Protective Edge” killed 2,200 Palestinians, and injured more than 10,000 others. It also claimed the lives of 66 Israeli soldiers and 6 Israeli civilian lives.
Our gathering falls on Tisha B’Av, the Jewish day of mourning. Traditionally, Jews fast on this day to remember the tragedies endured by our people. This year, we also remember the tragedies inflicted upon the Palestinians and the world.
We intend to create a Jewish ritual space where all are welcome, no matter their faith. In order to maintain that space, we ask that people not bring signs.
The location is accessible via the Coolidge Corner stop on the Green Line (C line) & Route 66 Bus.
