Last Friday, Peace Now hosted its annual Conference of the Israeli Progressive Peace Camp. The evening before the
conference, my team and I were very concerned. The forecast predicted the worst storm in a century, and we were
afraid not many people would brave the weather and attend. However, by 8:30 the next morning, hundreds of people had already arrived, surpassing even our most optimistic estimates.
The large auditorium quickly filled, and we had to argue with the ushers to get more people inside the room.
Despite the weather, we happily welcomed over 700 people and 70 speakers who had awakened early to travel
through snow, rain and cold, to take their place with the peace camp.
