November 11, 2019
Oxford University

What happens when instead of perpetuating a culture of blame, those on each side of the conflict come together and challenge themselves to listen and build? What’s easy, difficult, and impossible in creating a shared story? What do you sacrifice and what might you gain? How might Palestinian citizens of Israel play a special role in forging these new connections? We’ll be answering these questions and more, discussing all things activism within Israel, Arab-Jewish alliances and positive social…

In this year's collaboration, Trinity Politics Society and Cambridge University Israel Society invite you to an evening with Standing Together (Omdim B'Yachad). They are an Arab-Jewish progressive grassroots movement, which mobilises people around issues of peace, equality and social justice in Israel.

UK Jewish Film Festival: Incitement

November 19, 2019 @ 6:00 am - 8:30 pm
London Phoenix Cinema, 52 High Road
London, N2 9PJ United Kingdom
+ Google Map

Yachad are proud to co-sponsor, together with The Council of Christians and Jews, a screening of the new Israeli thriller film Incitement. This slow-burn study of religious obsession tries to fathom what drove a young law student to assassinate Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin. The assassination of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin in November 1995 was a devastating watershed moment for Israel. Incitement – premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September – is a mesmerising account of assassin Yigal Amir’s radicalisation process over a two-year period leading up to the murder, against the backdrop of violent protests, terror attacks and Amir’s…

Evening with Liat Schlesinger: Executive Director of the think-tank Molad

December 4, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
North-West London
£5 – £8

Molad is the leading think-tank of the Israeli peace-camp. Its comprehensive and fact-based analysis offers answers to questions like: Why are pro-peace parties in Israel failing? Why does the liberal-democrat majority in Israel believe itself a minority? What does the rocket fire onto southern Israel have to do with West Bank settlements? And where does the secret budget of the settler right come from? Despite the results of the general elections this year, Liat argues that the Israeli peace-camp can return to dominance in the public arena and ultimately win in the ballot box. Today, this task is not only a political goal, but also an existential necessity.…
