15th Annual Peace Service – A Jewish Voice for Peace & Justice

Sponsored by: Kalamazoo Interfaith Coalition for Peace and Justice
Keynote Speaker, May (Ariela) Ye

“A Jewish Voice for Peace and Justice”
May Ye is a senior piano performance major at Western Michigan University. Her passion is conflict resolution in the Middle East. She feels compelled to serve the Jewish community as a leader, an intermediary, and as an organizer for progressive Jewish life and social justice activism. She plans to attend the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College in Philadelphia. Her goal is to be a rabbi who can relate especially to those Jews who feel marginalized within Jewish communities—Jews of various hues, including those who have chosen Judaism as their faith, those who are Patrilineal Jews, and those with political beliefs outside the norm.

Refreshments and dialogue will follow the service. Voluntary contributions will be received. To be tax-deductible, contributions should be made payable to Jewish Voice for Peace. Free information on issues supporting peace and justice in the Middle East and elsewhere will be available on a literature table. Fair Trade Extra-Virgin Palestinian Olive Oil will be sold to benefit Palestinian Olive growers.
Free childcare will be provided.
