**Independence Day at Ben Shemen**
"So when I was growing up in Israel, I have a lot of interesting memories from those days. We used to go with the family to this forest near Jerusalem on Independence Day, to celebrate and grill shishliks and kebabs and relax among the trees. It was never my favorite thing to do—I’m not much of an outdoor type—so I don’t really have a lot of memories from it. But I do remember the stones."

This is intended to be a pluralistic space, but it is also an internationalist, anti-capitalist, anti-racist and pro-diaspora community. Nationalistic, racist, and classist perspectives will not be welcome.
