Welcome. What is the Israeli-Palestinian Joint Memorial Day Ceremony? It’s a day when both Israelis and Palestinians honor the dead who have died on both sides because of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the intention is to move forward to work on Peace. It broke even last year’s record with 280,000 attendees. The 16th Israeli-Palestinian Memorial Ceremony, co-hosted by Combatants for Peace and the Parents Circle – Families Forum, is a unique opportunity for Israelis and Palestinians to both grieve together and stand strong in demanding an end to the cycle of violence. The joint Israeli-Palestinian Memorial Ceremony honors the lives lost in the conflict on both sides, and builds a new narrative: rejecting violence, the occupation, and embracing another way. Year after year, the growing popular success of the event models for more Israeli, Palestinian and international audiences that non-violent, binational cooperation and humanization is feasible. The event sponsors believe in Peace and reconciliation and so does PEACE with Penny. Listen to the ceremony with Penny S. Tee as speakers and musicians memorialize those lost.
May You Live in Peace, שלום and سلام.
