American Friends of the Parents Circle - Families Forum

American Friends of the Parents Circle – Families Forum shares the human side of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict with the American public in order to foster a peace and reconciliation process.

The Parents Circle – Families Forum is a joint Israeli-Palestinian organization made up of more than 600 bereaved families. Their common bond is that they have lost a close family member to the conflict. But instead of choosing revenge, they have chosen a path of reconciliation.

What’s New

Parents Circle Under Attack

Yesterday right-wing activists, led by MK Ben-Gvir, demonstrated outside an Israeli public school in Jerusalem where bereaved Palestinian and Israeli members came to speak to the students about their loss and their choice for peace through our Dialogue Meetings program.

The school’s administration, the PTA, and even the Deputy Mayor of Jerusalem came to support the Parents Circle bereaved members and its messages of peace. 

A Valued New Year

In early February, the Parents Circle – Families Forum will gather 100-150 members for the first members’ face-to-face get-together in two years.  Each of the 600 members has had a moment when they confronted their anguish and their anger, and chose to side with the quest for peace and reconciliation. An inspiring collection of people.

Your support helps us continue and expand our groundbreaking projects. Your tax-deductible donation goes to support activities among Israelis and Palestinians planting seeds of reconciliation throughout our region.
