  • Combatants for Peace

    Temple Hillel Bnai Torah, 120 Corey Street, West Roxbury
    Thursday, April 26, 2018 - 8:00pm to 9:30pm

    At Temple Hillel Bnai Torah, 120 Corey Street, West Roxbury
    Co-sponsored by Dorshei Tzedek, Workmen’s Circle, and Congregation Nehar Shalom

    In 2006, Israeli and Palestinian former combatants, people who had taken an active role in the conflict, laid down their weapons and established Combatants for Peace. The egalitarian, bi-national, grassroots movement was founded on the belief that the cycle of violence can only be broken when Israelis and Palestinians join forces. Combatants for Peace is the only organization worldwide in which former fighters on both sides of an active conflict have laid down their weapons, choosing to work together for peace and justice. They have been twice nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. Come hear two representatives of the Combatants, Israeli and Palestinian, as they tell their personal stories of transformation from violence to nonviolence, and share the work that they are doing to end the occupation and bring peace to their homeland. They will also be screening a short clip of their award winning documentary, Disturbing the Peace.

Join us at 9:30 for z’man rishon, where our religious school community comes together for a weekly assembly that explores the themes of a shacharit (morning) service, other holidays or community events.

After that, a parent volunteer will take you on a tour of the school so you can see the learning in action.
