fast for Gaza
Please join the fast for Gaza. Beginning tomorrow, on the third Thursday of each month, I will join many Rabbis and other people of conscience as they observe a daylight water fast, to support the people of Gaza.
From the "Fast for Gaza" statement, we fast:
1. To call for a lifting of the blockade that prevents the entry of civilian goods and services into Gaza;
2. To provide humanitarian and developmental aid to the people of Gaza;
3. To call upon Israel, the US, and the international community to engage in negotiations without pre-conditions with all relevant Palestinian parties - including Hamas - in order to end the blockade;
4. To encourage the American government to vigorously engage both Israelis and Palestinians toward a just and peaceful settlement of the conflict.
