Letters of Hope

This year, on International Peace Day, bereaved Israeli and Palestinian parents
wrote letters to children they lost due to the conflict.

They are left with their memories, their empty rooms and a drive to make sure
that no one else suffers the same loss and pain.

No more deaths. No more empty rooms.

20 trees for 20 lives lost to the conflict

Today is Tu B’shvat, the Jewish holiday of ecological awareness. The bereaved Palestinian and Israeli members of the Parents Circle marked this day by planting 20 olive trees, both in the West Bank, near Hebron, and in Kibbutz Ramat Rahel, near Jerusalem. Each of these trees is dedicated to an Israeli or a Palestinian immediate family member who lost their life in the conflict and whose family belong to the organization.
