As international attention on Israel’s policies toward the Palestinians—occupation and blockade—increases, our Israel-Palestine Working Group produced the following program at our annual five-day New England Yearly Meeting (NEYM) Sessions:
- Outdoor displays: photos from Gaza and a pin wheel display memorializing the recent dead in Gaza
- Workshops: Building a Just Peace in Palestine-Israel with John Reuwer and Laurie Gagne, plus Moving our Meetings to Take Action on Israel-Palestine with Minga Claggett-Borne and Jonathan Vogel-Borne
- Informal lunch chats
- Photographic exhibition: Gaza Awaken by Skip Schiel
- A special visit and presentation by a colleague from Gaza, Dr. Mustafa El-Hawi
However, we failed to bring our annual report to meeting for worship with the intention of business, a staple of this Yearly Meeting. Click Talking Points (Word) for our report’s talking points, with illustrations.
