Building a New Israel, Activist by Activist

By Leonard Fein

Forward Association, 2008

At a gala for the New Israel Fund, an Arab/Jewish girls' choir performed Shir La'Shalom, the last song performed the night Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated, in both Arabic and in Hebrew. A Kumbaya moment perhaps, but even that is a step forward. Israel is a land so marked by cynicism and by resignation, by corruption and by confusion. But not here, not this night.
