The occupation is destroying Israel

Dear Friend
The news from Israel in the last twenty-four hours is tragic. The stabbings of six people at a Gay Pride march in Jerusalem and the horrifying news that overnight a Palestinian home was set fire to by settlers, resulting in the murder of a one year old baby boy who was burnt to death. Our thoughts and prayers are with all the victims of these heinous crimes.
Also this week, the Israeli high court ordered the demolition of two structures built on privately owned Palestinian land …

NUS NEC affiliate to BDS

As an organisation committed to supporting a peaceful outcome to the Israel Palestine conflict, we were disappointed to hear that NUS National Executive Council have passed a policy to affiliate to the Boycott Divestment Sanctions (BDS) movement and to support local BDS campaigns initiated by students on campuses across the UK.
We believe that a two state solution is the only viable and just resolution to the Israel Palestine conflict. The Boycott Divestment and Sanctions movement is based on …

We Need You: Sign the Open Letter

Dear Friend,
Write to Prime Minister Netanyahu by clicking here.
The election results from Israel, which come in the wake of a divisive and fear-mongering election campaign, are a wake-up call for all those who believe in a better Israel. The results are a wake-up call not just for Israelis but also for Jews across the world.
It is of course for Israelis to decide on who gets elected to the Knesset. However, when the Prime Minister of Israel makes it clear that he will never allow two-states …

Terror in Jerusalem

This morning (18th November) four people were killed in terror attack whilst praying a synagogue in Jerusalem. The killing of innocent civilians can never be justified and our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families. Violence and terrorism will do nothing to help restore calm to the region or bring the parties closer to an agreement. Sadly, it is tragic events like this that serve as a reminder that the status quo is not tenable, and how urgent it is that a political …

We need your help at 11 am today

From 11am this morning the Board of Deputies will debate and vote on whether to allow Yachad to become a member organisation. Whilst the debate is taking place it is important that deputies see there is a groundswell of support inside Anglo-Jewry for Yachad, and a desire from within the grassroots of the community for Yachad to be represented at the Board of Deputies. So…if you are a ‘tweeter’ please help us by getting on your twitter feed and letting the deputies know you …

Yachad statement following the house of commons vote to recognise Palestine

The vote in the House of Commons today in support of the recognition of the state of Palestine alongside the state of Israel, highlights the urgency of reaching a stable, enduring, comprehensive peace between Israel and the Palestinian people. Without significant progress towards reaching an agreement, international actions of this nature are likely to become more frequent, whilst the parties themselves grow further away from peace. Whilst the yes vote does not obligate British foreign policy, …
