Walking the Path of Light: Israeli Activist Renen Raz Dies

Beloved Israeli refusenik, BDS activist and advocate for Palestinian rights Renen Raz has died at 28, reportedly from brain cancer. Raised on a kibbutz near the Gazan border, his political awakening came after he asked about the "other people" who had lived in a now-empty house and "realized something wasn’t right." He spent most of his adult life organizing with anti-occupation groups. “My solution is just equality for all people," he said. "It’s a pure call for justice.”

Thank you. Shalom and salaam.
