PEACE with Penny SEASON 4: Presents the ALLMEP GALA “Meeting the Moment,” January 10, 2023

Another year is beginning and PEACE with Penny wants to continue to get the word out that the majority of Israelis and Palestinians do want Peace, but unfortunately, it’s only the extremists that make the news. Meanwhile, thousands of grassroots people work daily on Peace to make their lives better together.

We are starting off the year, celebrating the work of the Alliance for Middle East Peace or ALLMEP. Most of the Peace organizations that we interview at PEACE with Penny, are ALLMEP members. It’s a pleasure to let the world know that Israelis and Palestinians work on Peace from all different angles, even during challenging times when violence threatens to impede their efforts. This week will be a little different and instead of an interview, we will be sharing with you ALLMEP’s recent Gala called “Meeting the Moment,” on January 10, 2023. Why?

Because like PEACE with Penny, ALLMEP works every day for their membership to promote Peace in the Middle East. It has a membership of over 160 member organizations dedicated to working on Peace between Israelis and Palestinians. ALLMEP was instrumental in helping to get the US Congress to pass the Middle East Partnership for Peace Act or MEPPA, in 2020 to advance peaceful co-existence between Israelis and Palestinians.

Why not join us and hear about the first year when MEPPA funds were made available? The people who live this conflict want their children to play safely in their backyards. Although Israelis and Palestinians live closely, most often they don’t socialize and between the reality of violent episodes and amidst the isolation—fear, hatred and mistrust can spread like a disease. These organizations give us hope and help to heal these festering wounds.

May You Live in Peace, שלום and سلام.
