7pm Monday 25 April on Zoom
Rabbis are at the forefront of the struggle to protect human rights in Israel and the West Bank; the Israeli organisation, Rabbis for Human Rights, campaigns to uphold fundamental Jewish values in a tragic conflict that sadly shows no sign of ending.
Teams of rabbis and other Jewish Israeli RHR supporters—from Progressive/Reform/Liberal, Masorti/Conservative, and Orthodox communities—go to West Bank villages every year to help Palestinian farmers protect their olive groves from settler violence.
The organisation—which has 130 rabbis as members—also promotes social and economic justice within Israel itself, as well as carrying out educational projects and interfaith dialogue.
This special Zoom event was an opportunity for British Jews and others to hear what Rabbis for Human Rights does, and how people in the UK can help.
The speakers were Rabbi Michael Marmur, Chair of Rabbis for Human Rights (based in Israel), and Rabbi Alexandra Wright co-Chair of British Friends of Rabbis for Human Rights. There was also be an opportunity to ask questions, and a chance afterwards for discussion in smaller, breakout rooms.
This event was organised by Liberal Jews for Justice in Israel/Palestine. Here is a video recording (edited for brevity) of the event:
