On the one-year anniversary of the Israeli bombing of Gaza, Jewish Voice for Peace will hold an outdoor, public prayer service in Downtown Berkeley to mourn the deaths of more than 2000 of our Palestinian brothers and sisters, 500 of them children.

Jewish tradition provides us with language and tools to cope with this unfathomable loss, as well as a framework to discuss accountability. We invite all Jews and allies to join us in the Kaddish, the Jewish prayer for the dead. Mourners are encouraged to bring candles and small stones to place on an altar. The service will be led by Rabbi Lynn Gottlieb, and will include music and special guests. All are welcome.

Jewish Voice for Peace is a national, grassroots organization that provides a voice for Jews and allies who believe that peace in the Middle East will be achieved through justice and full equality for both Palestinians and Israelis.
