Israeli-Palestinian Bereaved Families for Peace

In 1994, following the abduction and murder of 19 years old Arik Frankenthal by Hammas terrorists, his father Yitzhak, founded the Parents Circle - an organization of bereaved parents who have lost their children to terrorism. It later expanded to include bereaved families who have lost a close relative, either by terrorism or in combat. The Parents Circle advocates peace and coexistence through the promotion of tolerance and compromise. By adhering to moral values, establishing the sanctity of human life and the protection of human dignity and liberty, the Parents Circle is leading the endeavors of bringing reconciliation to our beleaguered region, in spite of the human toll paid by its members. Over 250 Israeli and nearly 200 Palestinian families who lost their cherished ones in combat or in an act of terror, are united in a movement that is spearheading social and political alternatives aimed at resolving this deadly conflict and to terminate the senseless loss of human life.
