Yachad Trip to Israel and the West Bank
Nov 11 – Nov 15 all-day

Take part in a four-day study tour to Israel and the West Bank with Yachad from Sunday 11th – Thursday 15th November.

The purpose of our bespoke trips is to provide those that participate with up-to-date information and access to people and places that you would not normally be able to visit, deepening British Jewry’s understanding of the conflict.

By participating in one of our trips you will gain detailed knowledge and insight into the conflict and the reality on the ground. This information is essential in helping to create a more informed debate within the Anglo-Jewish community. The trip will include:

  • Meetings with politicians and diplomats
  • Visiting the military courts in the West Bank
  • Visiting Palestinian villages and communities in the West Bank
  • Trip to the southern border with Gaza
  • Meeting IDF spokespeople
  • Visiting East Jerusalem

Screening: The Oslo Diaries @ JW3
Nov 11 @ 8:30 pm

Yachad is proud to sponsor a screening of the The Oslo Diaries in this year’s UK Jewish Film festival.

In 1992 a group of Israelis and Palestinians clandestinely met in Norway in an attempt to achieve the impossible: a peace agreement between the PLO and Israel. Based on the diaries of the main protagonists, The Oslo Diaries chronicles the process, from a cautious sense of optimism to the initiative’s ultimate demise, symbolised by the assassination of Prime Minister Rabin. The film premiered at Sundance this year and features Shimon Peres’s last interview.

Warning: Film contains some distressing footage.

“Friendship among former enemies is a spectacle that inspires even as it leaves us saddened by the intractable political realities.” The Hollywood Reporter
