"8 Days..." - Luis Lainer, former APN Chair

On January 29, Americans for Peace Now will be holding its Vision of Peace Celebration event, and I invite you to take part, even without being present.

We all know "8 days" is central to the holiday of Hanukah. It is also significant to this upcoming special event. David Broza, the Israeli music superstar and dedicated peace activist -- and one of the event honorees -- spearheaded a project that also lasted 8 days (and nights), the outcome of which was the music album East Jerusalem, West Jerusalem. While not a Hanukah-level miracle, it is a unique and powerful statement about Israeli-Palestinian collaboration and coexistence, all of which was captured in a documentary film. Given the recent, misguided steps taken by President Trump regarding Jerusalem, the music and film that resulted from David Broza’s vision are all the more significant.

You need not be in Los Angeles on January 29 to join in the Vision of Peace Celebration and the honoring of David Broza and Rob Eshman, former esteemed publisher and editor-in-chief of the Jewish Journal.

With a donation to APN, your personal message to congratulate the honorees and/or in support of peace will be shared that night along with the other tribute messages. As a thank you, APN will send you an East Jerusalem-West Jerusalem album CD/movie DVD set.

Thank you for joining in APN's Vision of Peace Celebration,

Luis Lainer, Former Chair
Americans for Peace Now
