Israeli-Palestinian Memorial Day Ceremony April 30

“The Israeli-Palestinian Memorial Day Ceremony comes to remind us that war is not an act of fate but one of human choice.”

Dear Friends,

On April 30, 2017 cities around the world will be joining the 2017 Israeli-Palestinian Memorial Day Ceremony produced and led by Combatants for Peace, in partnership with the Parents Circle – Families Forum. Satellite events are being held across the world, to watch the ceremony from Tel Aviv, and to stand in solidarity with those who have paid the highest price in the conflict.
