Event Description

130+ peacemakers participated in the MEPEACE Iftar and Shabbat Dinner on September 11.

Thanks to all who came and all who wanted to be there. Special thanks to Anas Neiroukh, Tamar Freed and the others who organized this event.

People arrived from Nablus, Jericho, Ramallah, Beit Jalla, Hezma, Hebron, East and West Jerusalem, Haifa, Tel Aviv... We also had people from the US, Germany, France, Cypus, South Africa and Australia.

Beyond the Middle East, this event received media interest from Italy, Denmark, the US, the UK, Spain and China. We want to communicate that people of all faiths can come together for peace.

People arrived early and got to know one another. Dinner began with the end of the Ramadan fast day. A wide variety of traditional foods was served and guests sat and mingled at one huge interconnected table.

The program began after the meal. After welcoming remarks and thanks to the team, Eyal Raviv presented MEPEACE and what is possible. After sharing his personal memory of September 11th, we shared a moment of silence commemorating the tragedy, honoring the victims of that day and of our conflict, and reflecting on the peace we have and can have.

The education program followed with a discussion of the Iftar and Ramadan, and questions and answers from the crowd. A discussion of Shabbat followed. Information sheets were distributed with the customs and traditions in Arabic, English and Hebrew.

Everyone in the room voiced his/her voice with an introduction of name and birth month. 130+ voices were heard and we concluded by singing Happy Birthday to Lisa, in Arabic, Hebrew and English. The songs we share in common symbolize our shared striving for peace.

Thank you for participating in our event and for supporting us even if you could not be there. Let us meet in peace.
