South Hebron Hills

The South Hebron Hills region is one of the most rural areas of the West Bank. Most of its Palestinian residents live in temporary structures, subsisting on farming and grazing of flocks, with high rates of deprivation. The tour highlights the difficult situation in the region and the complex relationship between Palestinians, settlers, and the IDF. We will be guided by a tour guide from Breaking the Silence, an organisation of former IDF veterans.

The timings for the day are as follows:

9am Tour will depart from either Tel Aviv or Jerusalem, depending on where the majority of participants are based
10.30am Arrive at South Hebron Hills to begin tour (will include meeting with a Palestinian resident of the village of Susiya and a break for lunch).
3pm Leave South Hebron Hills
4.30pm Arrive back at start location

Israeli-Palestinian Alternative Memorial Ceremony livestreaming (with English subtitles) @ JW3
Apr 30 @ 6:45 pm – 8:45 pm

April 30, 2017 at 6.45-8.45 pm, at JW3, 341-351 Finchley Rd, London NW3 6ET  

The Israeli-Palestinian Alternative Memorial Day Ceremony, has been held following Israeli Memorial Day for the last twelve consecutive years. On this particularly difficult day, Israelis and Palestinians acknowledge the pain and the aspirations of those living on the “other side” and strive to prevent the next wave of violence.  Israeli and Palestinian bereaved families speak about their personal pain along with musical and artistic performances. Thousands of Israelis and Palestinians participate every year in this special event in Tel-Aviv led by Combatants for Peace and the Bereaved Families Forum.

You are invited to join us for a livestreaming of the Ceremony, followed by a discussion. Click here to sign-up.

This ceremony takes place in Israel following the traditional, national memorial ceremony. In London, because of the time difference, the streaming will take place before the communal ceremony that starts at 8pm in JW3. People are welcome to join both.

Rona Kenan in Concert for Yom Ha’atzmaut @ JW3
May 2 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

This year, to celebrate Yom Ha’atzmaut, Yachad & the New Israel Fund are delighted to be hosting a special concert with Rona Kenan at JW3.

With her distinctive velvety voice, biting lyrics and virtuoso guitar playing, Rona Kenan is one of Israel’s most distinguished artists. She has released four highly successful, critically-acclaimed albums to date, three of which reached gold status, and in 2009 she was named Singer of the Year by Israel’s most popular music radio station.

A gay rights activist, Kenan was one of the first artists to be vocal on this issue in Israel and has come under scrutiny for her broader support of civil society. This special Yom Ha’atzmaut concert will be followed by a Q+A exploring the relationship in Israel between politics, art and freedom of expression.

Tickets: £15
