Of course, Yachad 31/10/2014

Jewish Chronicle Leader, October 30th 2014
We all know the joke: two Jews, three opinions. There are almost as many viewpoints within our community as there are Jews – and that has, throughout history, been one of our great strengths.
Which is why the row over Yachad’s admission to the Board of Deputies is both ridiculous and worrying. Ridiculous, because of course Yachad should be allowed to join. On no sensible criteria can anyone object to its membership. It represents a …

Yachad backed in Board bid 31.10.14

Yachad Backed in Board Bid, Jewish Chronicle, 31.10.14  
More than 70 former leaders of Jewish youth groups, students and Limmud have signed a letter backing Yachad’s application to join the Board of Deputies.
The Board has twice postponed a decision on the bid from the liberal Zionist organisation which campaigns for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, but is expected to vote on it next month.
Signatories warned that “a vote against Yachad’s inclusion …

Guardian Editorial 14/10/2014

Guardian editorial:
It is easy to dismiss Monday night’s vote in the House of Commons, urging the British government to recognise Palestine as a state. For one thing, the vote was not binding: David Cameron and his ministers are free to ignore it, as in the immediate term they surely will. For another, the vote only partially reflects the views of the House: more MPs did not vote, 364 of them, than the 274 who voted for recognition. And even those who supported the move conceded that …

British Zionism, Jews and Gaza

An essay published in Open democracy 15/10/2014: In the UK, the main umbrella body of Zionist organisations is the Zionist Federation (ZF), and its history stretches back to 1899, but it does not represent all of them. Yachad (Together), the new-ish ‘pro-Israel, pro-peace’ group, which is the flag-bearer for liberal Zionism today, and which is seen as on the left and has a mostly young following, is not a member. Neither is the New Israel Fund (NIF), which ‘exists to help secure …

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, …

Disagree with us but keep the debate respectful

Yachad’s Director Hannah Weisfeld  has written in the Jewish News 
 
Yachad was established in May 2011 to give a voice to British Jewish supporters of Israel enabling them to speak up in support of a two-state solution as a basis for providing peace and security for Israel and the Palestinian people.
Since then, tens of thousands of community members have attended our events, taken part in our campaigns and trips, and in just over three years, we have amassed upwards of 4,000 …

48: Hannah Weisfeld
The 33-year-old has emerged as one of the leading voices of the moderate centre-left on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. She insists that her Yachad organisation (which means together), is “avowedly pro-Israel” but Weisfeld is also fierce critic of Israeli policies in the West Bank. During Operation Protective Edge she has made numerous media appearances on the BBC and Al Jazeera, advocating a …
