Israeli-Palestinian Joint Memorial Day Ceremony
May 3rd, 2022, 12:30pm CST
Join the largest Israeli-Palestinian peace event in history. On May 3, 2022, we will gather to call
for peace, freedom, and human rights for all. The Joint Israeli-Palestinian Memorial Day
Ceremony is hosted by Combatants for Peace and The Parents Circle–Families Forum, and we
are proud that Central Reform Congregation is an official sponsor this year.
Yom Hazikaron, Israel’s Memorial Day, is a solemn day on which Israelis remember those they
have lost in the years of war and conflict. Traditionally, the Palestinian narrative is erased, leading
both sides into deeper despair. By acknowledging the pain of those living on the other side, the
Ceremony offers us all the choice to walk a new path: the path of respect, equality, freedom – and
ultimately peace. In this time of immense anxiety and separation, the upcoming Joint Memorial
Day Ceremony offers hope for a better future.
