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
Thank you for joining in APN's Vision of Peace Celebration,
Luis Lainer, Former Chair
Americans for Peace Now
