Parents’ Circle – Families’ Forum

Sunday 13th March at 18:00 via Zoom

Palestinian Bassam Aramin and Israeli Rami Elchanan (see below) will speak about their work. After the tragic killing of each of their daughters by the other side, they have worked for years to further peace and justice between Israel and Palestine. They will tell us their stories, and about their work in the Parents Circle*, now numbering over 600 families, who have all suffered the murder of a close family member.

They will give us their view on how the Dialogue methodology may help us to further discussion of difficult topics within our own Liberal Jewish communities.

Format: Bassam and Rami will speak (40 mins), followed by your opportunity to ask questions (20 mins). There will then be half an hour, for those who can stay beyond 6.30 pm, for discussion in small groups, and an opportunity to meet other Liberal Jews from across the UK.

Registration: E-mail, and we will send you the Zoom link on Friday 11th March.

*The Parents Circle–Families Forum (PCFF) is a joint Israeli-Palestinian organization of over 600 families, all of whom have lost an immediate family member to the ongoing conflict. The PCFF believes that the process of reconciliation between nations is a prerequisite to achieving a sustainable peace.


This event is hosted by Liberal Jews for Justice in Israel/Palestine
