To support the work of OneVoice Israel (OVI), Rabbi Soetendorp signed a letter to the members of the Knesset to applaud the launch of the Two-State Solution Caucus, taking place at the Knesset’s Jerusalem Hall on Monday, Jan. 17, 2011, at 12 pm.

The caucus was conceived and co-created by OneVoice Israel (OVI) and MK Yoel Hasson, chair of the Kadima coalition and himself a former OVI youth leader. Among its 18 other members are MK Zeev Bielski, Shlomo Molla, and Nachman Shai. It’s the first time Knesset members unite under a non partisan body to advance a direct political solution with the Palestinians.

OVI is holding the event to bolster the existing political will in Israel to end the conflict, witnessed most recently by the meeting held between a delegation of 100 leading Israelis and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah. Opposition leader MK Tzipi Livni (Kadima) and several other Israeli and international dignitaries will be in attendance; the event will be televised.
