Missing Israeli teenagers 17.06.2014

Yachad condemns the kidnapping on late Thursday evening  in the West Bank of the three Israeli teenagers Eyal Yifrach, 19, Naftali Frankel, 16, and Gil-ad Shaar, 16.  We pray for their safe and speedy return to their families.

A ray of hope

Dear Supporter,
Will you join us on Tuesday?
With the collapse of the peace process, and, on Wednesday this week, the end of the 9-month deadline set by US Secretary of State John Kerry for a breakthrough in the negotiations, we know it’s hard to feel positive.

A decision not to release the next round of Palestinian prisoners, announcements that the Palestinian Authority has requested to sign 15 international conventions at the United Nations, alongside new building tenders in east Jerusalem, have all contributed to the breakdown. You …

Have you been to the West Bank?

Dear Yachad supporter,
‘…there is no substitute for finding out what is really happening on the ground by visiting and asking difficult questions. I had made numerous assumptions from both Jewish and non-Jewish media, which were simply wrong.’
These are the words written by David Middleburgh in the Jewish Chronicle, the week after he returned from our three day legal trip to the West Bank. It is for this exact reason that Yachad has, over the past three years, facilitated …
