January 21 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm


Register to receive the Zoom Link

Please join us on Sunday, January 21, from 10 AM to 12:30 PM, as we gather as a community at JRC to view a live-streamed talk by the Israeli-Palestinian non-profit Standing Together, followed by lunch and a facilitated discussion.

Standing Together is a grassroots movement in Israel/Palestine organizing Jewish and Palestinian citizens towards peace, equality, and social justice. You will gain insights from the activists working tirelessly on the ground as they share their perspectives on reshaping the current narrative and the path forward for achieving systemic societal change, and you will discover how you too can contribute.

We will hear from Sally Abed, a Palestinian citizen of Israel, who is Head of Development and part of Standing Together’s elected leadership and Nadav Shofet, a Jewish citizen of Israel, who is the Community Organizer for the Tel Aviv-Yafo Standing Together Chapter and part of the Standing Together’s elected leadership.

After the live stream event, we will have an in-person discussion facilitated by members Hanna Seltzer and Abby Harris-Ridker where we can share our thoughts and feelings regarding the vision and actions of Standing Together. Lunch will be provided, sponsored by the program committee of the Israel-Palestine Working Group.

10:00 am — 11:20 am Live Streamed Presentation

11:20 am — 11:50 am Lunch

11:50 am — 12:30 pm Facilitated Discussion

Please RSVP HERE to join us at JRC so we can plan accordingly.

If you cannot attend in person, no worries! You may register here to watch the Zoom talk from home (register at least a day in advance). Please note that the post-presentation facilitated discussion will not be hybrid; if you watch the Zoom from home the event will end around 11:20 AM.
