INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS: JOIN US THIS FRIDAY FOR A SPECIAL PROGRAM HARVESTING OLIVES WITH PALESTINIAN FARMERS IN THE OCCUPIED TERRITORIES!
Rabbinical, cantorial and Jewish education students: Join us this Friday for a special opportunity to harvest olives alongside Palestinian farmers. We will pick shoulder-to-shoulder, tour the area, learn about the impact of settlements on Palestinian agriculture, and hear how RHR has returned farmers to their lands. Although this program is specially designed for rabbinical, cantorial and education students, all are welcome!
WE WILL BE HARVESTING WITH A WELCOMING PALESTINIAN COMMUNITY FAR FROM ANY ISRAEL SETTLEMENTS. WE DO NOT ANTICIPATE ANY SECURITY ISSUES.
We will depart from Liberty Bell Park in Jerusalem at 8am, returning by 2pm.
If Friday is not good for you, we will be going out most day (Sunday-Friday) until November 6th. You are welcome to join us any of those days instead or as well.
TO REGISTER (for Friday or any other day): firstname.lastname@example.org or call 02 648 2757
RHR is Israel's "Rabbinic voice of conscience," and serves as a role model for those wishing to base the struggle for justice in the Jewish tradition. Some 130 Israeli rabbis are RHR members, and we are the recipient of the Speaker of the Knesset's Prize for our contributions to Israeli society. RHR has been endorsed by the RA, CCAR, RRA and Ohala, as well as the British Liberal and Reform movements. Believing that all humans are created in God's Image, RHR educates Israelis on Judaism and human rights, champions socioeconomic justice for Israelis, defends Palestinian human rights, advocates for the Bedouin and speaks out on behalf of African asylum seekers. We have a new interreligious department. RHR helped create RHR-NA in 2002. We separated in January 2013, and they are now called "Truah". RHR is not affiliated with any political party. We support a negotiated settlement to the Israeli Palestinian conflict, but it is beyond our mandate to take a position on any specific peace plan or final status proposal.
