I was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Sara Ehrman, z”l on June 3, 2017 at age 98. Sarah was a lifelong activist and political leader who touched the lives on many. In her memory, I share excerpts from her October 19, 2016 AJPA interview covering nearly a century of progressive pro-Israel activism.

This is the second installment of a 50-year timeline of American Jewish and Israeli peace activism since 1967 by the American Jewish Peace Archive (AJPA).

I want to thank the many AJPA peace pioneers who generously shared their stories and longtime activist Hillel Schenker Co-Editor of the Palestine-Israel Journal, for his counsel on the Israeli peace movement. Read the first installment:  Jewish Peace Movement Timeline 1967-69.
