35] – Join the IfNotNow team on its national call on Wed., Dec. 6 at 8 PM ET. During Chanukah, Jews remember a time of miracles, of light shining through horror — even when it feels impossible. It’s also a time to gather with loved ones.  Some of us are working to end the siege on Gaza and organize for a lasting ceasefire, but others do not see the situation the same way.  Learn how you can help grow the Jewish movement for a lasting ceasefire.  Hear from people working hard to connect with fellow community members, learn more about how to have hard conversations, and gear up for a week of action with friends and family. This call is primarily for American Jews or anyone who is in deep relationship with American Jews.  RSVP for the national call at https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_-Tr-WhQ0Skmac4USVZ0HPQ?sourceid=1051385&emci=c768d658-4192-ee11-8925-002248223f36&emdi=d94851bd-0c93-ee11-8925-002248223f36&ceid=30868439#/registration
