Thanks you to the 9 Jewish peacemakers who sought to show the common humanity of Jews, Jewish-Israelis and Palestinians. At this time of Sukkot we remember the fragile shelter (sukkha) that protected the ancient Hebrews in their search for refuge when they fled Egypt. We give thanks for those within the Jewish community on board the ship Irene who sought to ensure basic human dignity and justice for those in the Palestinian community undergoing a 3 year long siege. They are not forgotten.
