American Communities Mark 2018 Israeli-Palestinian Memorial Day

“The Israeli-Palestinian Memorial Day Ceremony comes to remind us that war is not inevitable”

On April 17, 2018, thousands of Israelis and Palestinians will come together to remember the shared pain experienced on both sides of the conflict. The Israeli-Palestinian Alternative Memorial Day Ceremony, which has been held following Israeli Memorial Day for the past twelve years, comes to remind us that war is not an act of fate but one of human choice.

This powerful ceremony will be streamed online live from Tel Aviv, and we are inviting you to participate:

  • Invite your community, colleagues, friends, and constituents to a selected venue on Tuesday, April 17 to watch the livestreaming of the Israeli-Palestinian Memorial Day Ceremony. English subtitles will be available.
  • At your event, you are welcome to invite local speakers from your community to lead a discussion on memorializing, reconciliation or other related topics followed by a discussion.
  • Or, if you’re in the New York City or Washington, D.C. areas, join New Israel Fund, friends of the Parents Circle, and Combatants for Peace at our livestreaming events (more information coming soon).

Learn more about the ceremony and how you can share it in your community here.
