"Judaism has never been solely a religion to me. It’s a people, a culture, and a religion, kind of like a state of being. It helps me locate myself in the world."
A two session series is currently planned by the Mid East Working Group:
First Session: November 8: Barbara Lubin, Director, Middle East Children's Alliance, will discuss MECA's work in Gaza and how it dealt with efforts to block an exhibit of Gaza children's drawings.
Second Session: Speaker and date TBA: will examine the MECA case and explore when advocacy is viewed as anti-Israel, and why.
Our work in support of a just peace between Israel and the Palestinian people is guided by principles developed by the Middle East Working Group and adopted by the Board of Boston Workmen’s Circle:
- Ending the occupation
- Establishing two viable states, a homeland for the Jewish people and a homeland for the Palestinian people
- An end to the violence on all sides
- Making room for a diversity of views
