JEWISH VIGIL AGAINST ATTACKS ON GAZA

Monday, January 12, 2009, 9:38 PM

Dear friends,

Like many of you, we are outraged and heartsick about the unrelenting Israeli attacks on Gaza. As of now, almost 1000 Gazans have been killed, nearly half of them civilians -- and of those, most are children.

JEWISH VOICE FOR PEACE/Bay Area is joining with Jews in Israel, Toronto, Montreal, New York City, Great Britain, and elsewhere, in calling for an end to the brutal assault on Gaza NOW:

* Immediate unconditional ceasefire
* Stop killing all civilians
* End the siege of Gaza
* End the occupation

Please JOIN US for a JEWISH VIGIL on WEDNESDAY, JAN. 14, 5pm in front of the Israeli Consulate in San Francisco, 456 Montgomery Street, a few blocks from the Montgomery Street BART.

Wear black, bring candles, and bring signs (like "Jews Say..."). See the attached Media Advisory for more info.
PHOTO/VIDEO: Banners, signs, candles.
PLEASE FORWARD!

Everyone is welcome. However, our intent is to send a message about strong JEWISH support for our demands, to show Jewish voices that support human rights for all. So if your signs can help us make that point, we would appreciate it.
[ Mara suggests: flags could distract from our message]

Jewish Voice for Peace (http://www.jvp.org) is inspired by Jewish tradition to work together for peace, justice, and human rights; we support the aspirations of Israelis and Palestinians for security and self-determination. For more info: bayarea [at] jewishvoiceforpeace.org.
