A message from Rabbi Shawn Zevit and the Mishkan Shalom Leadership, April 7, 2024:

After an agonizing six months of suffering, starting with the atrocities committed in Israel, followed by relentless destruction in Gaza, Mishkan Shalom calls on all parties for an immediate sustainable ceasefire.

It is past time to count the dead. Gaza is being demolished, and its people and culture destroyed. We are Jews with a profound love of our traditions and our people, and a profound dedication to justice born of our own history as an enslaved and slaughtered people. Now we are forced to witness grave injustices, massive killing, displacement, and an imposed deliberate famine for the entire civilian population in Gaza. We cannot turn away. We cannot stand by. 

We can and must stand on the side of all humanity and cry out for peace, now and going forward.

We call on Israel and Egypt to allow humanitarian aid into Gaza immediately from all borders without restriction.  We call on Hamas to release all the hostages taken on October 7th. We call on the international community to urgently demand an end to this violence, and to protect the sacredness of every soul, every life, in Gaza, Israel, and the West Bank. All of these must happen, but first, the killing must end.

Please see as background the recent statement from HIAS, one of the most respected non-profit International Jewish Organizations Click here
