Tucson, AZ: Nakba Day Vigil

May 15, 2018 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm

May 15 is known in most diaspora Jewish communities as “Israeli Independence Day,” and is considered a time of celebration. But to Palestinians, this day marks the Nakba, or catastrophe. In 1948, some 750,000 Palestinians were expelled or fled from their homes in what is now Israel. This mass displacement is a root of the ongoing human rights abuses faced by Palestinians.

Join us in a vigil to commemorate 70 years since the Nakba. As we recognize the ongoing crises faced by dispossessed Palestinians, we will also be recognizing the resistance in the Great March of Return, and honoring its victims.
