Bid for Peace During APN's Auction (April 11 - 20)

Dear Friend of APN,

If you enjoyed watching Mandy Patinkin lead our moving and memorable commemoration to Yitzhak Rabin last fall, you’re going to love what I have to offer you today. 

How about a chance to meet Mandy and his wife, Kathryn Grody, for lunch in New York City? 

Or if you’re a M*A*S*H fan, would you like to own a script from the iconic television series, written by and personally inscribed to you by star Alan Alda? Or if you’re interested in collectible memorabilia from Israel, you could acquire an authentic hand-written letter from Prime Minister David Ben Gurion. 

As you might have guessed by now, in just six days, Americans for Peace Now is launching an online fundraising auction, and the items couldn’t be more enticing. As Auction Chair, I am excited to invite you to join us in the bidding fun. 

We have items in many categories – fine art, celebrity collectibles, politics, music, food and wine and much more – and there are wonderful things at every price point. 

If you’re a fan of cooking shows, Emmy and four-time James Beard Award winning TV personality, chef, writer, teacher and social justice advocate Andrew Zimmern is offering a 30-minute Zoom conversation about anything under the sun – especially food!

Or maybe you really like film and stage actor Joshua Malina’s work on West Wing, Sports Night, Scandal, The Big Bang Theory… the list could go on. You could win a chance to meet Joshua for a Zoom chat.

The APN auction opens on Sunday, April 11th – and runs for 10 days, through Tuesday, April 20th.  We will be sending out a link to the auction site in the coming days and throughout the auction. All bidding will be conducted online, and winning bids will be processed online at the end of the auction. 

So mark your calendar and come prepared to bid. We also hope you’ll share this with your friends and family, and invite them to help support APN’s work to help bring about a just and lasting peace for all Israelis and Palestinians. 

For more information please contact Karen Paul at

We look forward to your bids!

P.S.  We will be sending out the link to auction at the end of the week and will re-send it a few times during the auction dates of April 11-20. We hope you’ll bid!
