START THE NEW YEAR OFF RIGHT!
Rabbis for Human Rights
is pleased to invite you to join us as we begin this year’s
During the intermediate days of Sukkot
and in the weeks that follow
Call: 02 6482757 or email email@example.com
Every fall, Rabbis for Human Rights brings hundreds of volunteers to work side-by-side with Palestinian farmers during our Olive Harvest campaign. Our presence provides protection against possible settler intimidation, enables farmers to pick within the limited number of days that they can safely do so, and has also become an act of solidarity between Israeli Jews and Palestinians.
If you would like to join us for a day of harvesting in the territories, please sign up by calling or emailing our office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 02 648 2757. You can also email the director of RHR’s human rights activity in the Occupied Territories, Rabbi Yehiel Grenimann, at email@example.com.
DEPARTURE: We will be leaving from Liberty Bell Gardens parking lot (Jerusalem) at 6:20 (actually the bus will leave at 6:30 precisely), with the possibility of a pick up at Binyanei HaUma (near the central bus station) at approx. 6:45 and a pick up at the Rosh HaAyin train station at 7:20am.
REGISTRATION: Registration at the office is until 16:30 the day before. Those wanting to go out on Sundays must register by 16:30 on Thursdays. If you have not registered on time you are not assured a place on the bus or being informed of last minute changes, cancellations, etc. Registration on time might sometimes impact on the decision to go out at all, if there are not enough volunteers. Our volunteers are invited to contribute to the cost of the bus according to their ability and generosity.
A NOTE ON SECURITY: We will not publish names of the places (all in area C) we are going to because of security concerns and the need for flexibility in our work. We are in contact with 50 villages.
In general, we will be working in places with scheduled army protection (this is for the Palestinians and settlers, not for us!) but not always. We would like to know who is and is not willing to pick in such places.
PLEASE BRING: All the volunteers are requested to bring valid current identification (identity card, passport, driving license), food for the day, water, work clothes (and to be sensitive to traditional Muslim dress code for women) closed shoes, and protection from the sun.
Wishing you all a Hag Sameach and a successful and peaceful olive harvest! We hope to see you in the field!
