PENINSULA LEARNING RESOURCE CENTER UPDATE

 

Dear Colleague,

 

Rabin's Memorial Day is next week – the 12th of Cheshvan, Wednesday, October 20.

Some people prefer to go by the common date of November 4th.

We carry a wide array of learning materials, including lesson plans, movies, and music.

You can also explore many valuable internet sites. Some are listed here:

B'Shalom,

 

Shlomit

 

"You don't make peace with friends. You make it with very unsavory enemies."

 

"We will not rest until we reach a permanent agreement [with the Palestinians] that would secure a safe future for our children and that would provide us with renewed hope to live in a region where people lead a life of co-operation and not, God forbid, where blood is shed."

 

"Of all hands in the world, it was not the hand that I wanted or dreamed of touching, ... We, the soldiers who have returned from battle stained with blood, we who have seen our relatives and friends killed before our eyes, we who have attended their funerals and cannot look into the eyes of their parents, we who have come from a land where parents bury their children, we who have fought against you, the Palestinians - we say to you today in a loud and clear voice: Enough of blood and tears. Enough. ...The time for peace has come."
