Accompanying Palestinian Shepherds in the Jordan Valley
Friends, the olive harvest is over but the occupation continues and there is more for us to do. Rabbis for Human Rights is a part of the Jordan Valley coalition, made p of volunteers from all over who come to the Jordan Valley to accompany Palestinian shepherds who face violence and harassment from settlers and soldiers. This happens all year round and it is an important way to continue the important work of building a future based on justice.
To join this important work fill in this form (it's in Hebrew, if you need help, reach out): https://forms.gle/oHdNBy8NwjgfaNKF6
Then let Tamar Yaron, the volunteer coordinator, know that you completed the form by sending her a whatsapp message at 0523990539 (Hebrew or English is fine). You can also let her know what days you plan to go out in the near future so she can get that coordinated.
Here is a (Hebrew) link with background on the accompaniment work of the coalition: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1aPn4LftVMUvMz2AEqm3cLYq79VnQVN7s/view?usp=drivesdk
