The Festival of Rights

Starting tomorrow night, PJA will be running the Festival of Rights, a yearly celebration of student human rights organizations on Harvard's campus.

Each night of Channukah, we will feature a different human rights group in the PJA blog.

Look for the Festival of Rights posters near the Hillel dining hall, and watch out for news about the Human Rights Panel and Judaism and Activism discussions next week!

PJA at the Israel Fest!

This morning, PJA, along with Harvard Hillel and the Harvard Students for Israel, hosted the annual Israel Fest outside the Science Center. Over the course of the day, hundreds of students stopped by to enjoy free falafel and pita, listen to Israeli music, and learn about various Israel-related programs on campus.

PJA highlighted a number of progressive Israeli organizations, and collected dozens of "Prayers for Peace" to be delivered to the Kotel, the Western Wall, in a few weeks.

All in all, Israel Fest was a great success this year, as in the past!
