2020 International Peace Day
How Ironical that International Peace day on the 21st September, coincides with 20 years of the beginning of the 2nd Palestinian Intifada. We mark these two conflicting events by illustrating the consequence of a conflict which should have ended years ago.
7 families who will never be the same, 7 empty rooms belonging to the ones they lost, before, during and after the Intifada. Read these 7 letters of love and hope and transformation – and be inspired to bring about change so that there will be no more empty rooms.
The Israeli-Palestinian Bereaved Families Forum, together with Combatants for Peace and other organizations, gathered at the Almog Junction in the Jordan Valley, to jointly oppose the annexation plan, and to stand in solidarity with our Palestinian partners against the occupation.
The Parents Circle Families Forum invites anyone who has lost a family member due to the conflict, to join us
Together, we will work to prevent more bereavement, and to promote dialogue, tolerance, reconciliation and peace.
The Israeli-Palestinian Memorial Day Ceremony 2020
Watch the 2020 Ceremony here!
The Ceremony was held on Memorial Day Eve, April 27th, 2020, 8:30PM. About 200,000 viewers from all over the world, including thousands of viewers from Gaza and tens of thousands from the Palestinian Authority watched the Ceremony via web streaming.
Following the streamed Ceremony, ten bereaved families opened their homes and invite anyone who wanted to join a zoom conversation with them in their private living room, sharing their bereavement stories and about the path they have chosen to take – a path of reconciliation rather than revenge.
One of our main activities
An Israeli and a Palestinian, who tell their personal stories of bereavement and explain their choice to engage in dialogue instead of revenge.
