TU B`SHEVAT 2016!
Join Rabbis for Human Rights on Monday January 25th as we plant trees in the
Palestinian village of Duma for Tu B’Shevat, the Jewish version of Arbor
With tensions high, now is the time to show the world that solidarity and
fellowship between Jews, Israelis and Palestinians is possible!
JOIN RABBIS FOR HUMAN RIGHTS AS WE PLANT OLIVE SAPLINGS IN THE PALESTINIAN
VILLAGE OF DUMA, WHERE THE HORRIFIC ARSON MURDERS OCCURRED LAST SUMMER, AND
WHERE OLIVE SAPLINGS WERE UPROOTED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT 5 YEARS AGO.
Your participation takes a stand against Jewish extremism, shows
Palestinians a different face of Judaism, promotes solidarity and fellowship
between Palestinians and Israelis, and directly benefits generations of
Palestinians to come. Plus – you’ll have fun while doing it!
