When Secretary of State John Kerry relaunched peace talks last year, he asked the American Jewish community and supporters of a two-state solution to build a great constituency for peace to show that we stand behind his efforts to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. On February 3, Philadelphia will answer the call. We’re honored to have Israeli Gen. (ret) Amram Mitzna, current Member of the Knesset and an outspoken advocate of peace, to explain that peace is not only possible—in fact it’s essential for Israel’s future as a democratic, Jewish homeland. The meeting will be chaired by J Street President Jeremy Ben-Ami. Join us at 7:30pm at University of Pennsylvania’s Hillel to show your support and build the constituency for peace.

Despite the oncoming horrors of the Holocaust, Gilbert and Eleanor Kraus bravely traveled into the heart of the Nazi empire in an effort to save innocent lives. Their unlikely mission would turn an ordinary American couple into extraordinary heroes. Their incredible story has never been told...until now.    Special guest, holocaust survivor and one of the 50 children rescued, Kurt Herman, will be at the movie screening for a question and answer session.    All ticket sales benefit Almond Branch Initiative, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing humanitarian aid to the state of Israel.
