Vigil for Peace in the Middle East


We come together as people of diverse faiths and backgrounds to:
Mourn all who have died
Pray for all who are suffering
Stand with all who are facing hatred
Call out for an end to all the violence
Unite in compassion and peace

Saturday, November 11, 6:30pm
King Plaza, 250 Hamilton Ave., Palo Alto

In the spirit of unity and holding fast to our common humanity,
please join us for this peaceful gathering with words, music and prayer.
Coming together in the richness of our diversity is the only path to peace.

We grieve for each and every human being lost, wounded, suffering loss, afraid, and despairing of the coming nights and days of uncertainty and pain.

We pray for the violence to cease, and for the world to come together to support all who have been harmed and to bring a lasting peace to a land that has suffered too much for too long.

Within our own communities and nations, we commit to stand against anti-Semitic, anti-Arab, and anti-Muslim incidents or rhetoric of any kind.

As people of faith committed to peace, we gather to speak words of compassion and solidarity, aloud and in silent prayer, and seek actions that foster healing, peace and justice.
