He also is cofounder and serves on the board of Just Peace Advocates. A well-known international human rights attorney, Jonathan practices law in the US, Palestine and Israel.
A discussion session with Jonathan will follow after the service in the sanctuary and on zoom.

For those attending virtually
As well, Robert Massoud from Zatoun will offer a display of Palestinian products for sale such as olive oil, and zaatar.
No funds from this service were provided to JPA although originally were offered, but then the offer was withdrawn without letting us know. We would have been providing money to one or more of the designated groups in Palestine.
