The Bereaved Families Forum (also known as the Parents Circle-Families Forum) consists of a group of 600 Palestinian and Israeli families who believe that retaliation is not a useful response to violence.

All of them have lost close relatives to intercommunal violence, and are determined to spare others what they have suffered.

The Forum runs a wide variety of educational, social and artistic projects in Israel and the Palestinian territories. Read about them here.

The Forum has its own extensive website here.



The Forum has assembled a stunning collection of cartoons from around the world which address the futility of violence as a solution to the problems of the Middle East. They have been exhibited in Israel, the Palestinian territories, the USA, Spain, Italy and London. See all the cartoons
