Across the Middle East, despite great cultural, religious, and political divides, individuals and organizations are coming together to find common ground and friendship on platforms ranging from the environment to music to soccer and so much more. Join with friends in your community and like-minded people around the world for a once-in-a-lifetime gathering to support and celebrate the many cooperative and cross-border efforts between individuals at the grassroots level with the hopes of building a new, sustainable, and better Middle East
An hour-long internet-based group-watching experience hosted by Emmy and Tony Award Winner Mandy Patinkin, With Earth and Each Other will feature celebrities, special musical performances including the legendary Pete Seeger, and segments highlighting many of the wonderful and moving examples of Middle East cooperation. But this is not just a watching experience, as those participating throughout the world will be asked to join together at the event’s conclusion to sing “Salaam (Od Yavo Shalom Aleinu),” a well-known song in Hebrew and Arabic that envisions the new future that we all wish for. (For help learning the song, click here.)
With Earth and Each Other will demonstrate that there is more to the Middle East than conflict.
This is not a political rally. The purpose is not to take a side, say who is right or wrong, or suggest what the peace process or the solution should look like. Instead, the purpose is to raise the voices of those on all sides, and throughout the world that yearn for peace, to marginalize those who try to undermine it, and to show the world that there is another side of the conflict in which people across borders are striving to work together for the betterment of all.
So spread the word, sign up to attend a local rally watching event, and let’s join together for this special day to bring hope to a new future for the Middle East and for all of us.
