An evening of personal narrative from the Women’s Center for Creative Work and Eastside Jews.

Sumud (Steadfastness) Freedom Camp was created by more than 300 diaspora Jews, Palestinians and Israelis as a safe, unarmed space in the heart of the occupied West Bank. Sumud was founded for people to come together, hear one another’s stories, and build community and to return displaced Palestinian families to their homes.  Come and hear three Jewish women from L.A. share stories of their journey to Sumud, the friends they met there, and their hopes for a better future.

صمود : مخيم الحريه | Sumud: Freedom Camp | צֻמוּד: מחנה חירות is a diverse community whose sacred values compel us to join in shared nonviolent resistance to discrimination, inequality, and occupation and build a future in which the civil and human rights of all people are recognized unequivocally.

The Center for Jewish Nonviolence is a collaborative, democratic organization that brings Diaspora Jews to Israel to stand in solidarity with Palestinians in nonviolent action against the occupation. More info here.

Our program costs go directly towards compensation of the instructors and staffers who work the event. We want to make programming as accessible as possible to anyone who is interested, however, so we offer volunteer opportunities in exchange for membership, as well as free community tickets to each program (number varies depending on capacity of the class).
