Standing Together – a route to peace

In these troubled times, Standing Together offers a beacon of hope. A grassroots movement mobilising Jewish and Palestinian citizens of Israel, its focus is the pursuit of peace, equality and social justice. Founded in 2015, it has experienced an increase in membership since the Hamas attacks and the war in Gaza. Engaging Palestinian and Jewish Israelis in a joint struggle to end the military control of millions of Palestinians and achieve peace, as well as equality and social justice for all citizens of Israel, it works on student campuses and organises citizens in towns across Israel to work together for a better future.

LJJIP’s two guest speakers were Rula Daood and Nadav Shofet, from the Standing Together leadership team.

Rula Daood is the National Co- director of Standing Together and a qualified speech therapist. She was born and raised in the Galilee village of Kafr Yasif and began her activism there. Later, she became involved in promoting Jewish-Arab partnership in mixed (Jewish-Arab) cities. Before joining Standing Together, Rula worked as a community organiser, organising events and protests that drew hundreds of activists.

Nadav Shofet is a member of the national leadership of Standing Together. He is the community organizer for the movement’s Tel Aviv-Jaffa local chapter, and following October 7th, he took part in founding the Jewish-Arab solidarity guard in the city.

This event was organised by Liberal Jews for Justice in Israel/Palestine. It was LJJIP’s first public event since 7th October 2023. Standing Together provides inspiration in its work towards an alternative to the violence suffered by all who live in the region.
