THE LIT – SUNDAY 2 MARCH 2014 REPORT OF THE SUKKAT SHALOM HUMAN RIGHTS TRIP TO ISRAEL/PALESTINE IN MAY 2013 Page 1 Micheline Brannan PHOTO GALLERY

In 2012, Sukkat Shalom donated part of their Kol Nidrei Appeal proceeds to Physicians for Human Rights - Israel.  Later, the UK representative of that organisation, Miri Regev, was invited to speak about their work.  Her moving and disturbing account was the inspiration for the 9 day trip organised by Maurice Naftalin, which was the subject of this Lit meeting. Avery Meiksin chaired the meeting.  


Maurice explained that the group had given themselves a demanding agenda over 9 days, focusing on organisations with a human rights or co-existence focus, rather than political parties, religious groups, settlers or militants.  On some days they split up and went to different places so there were 6 members on the platform to tell their stories.  


The aims of the trip were

Dialogue with and support for human rights organisations;

To gain a better understanding of the issues;

To bring that understanding back to the UK and share it with others willing to listen.
