Ta'anit Tzedek, the Jewish Fast For Gaza hosted Dr. Sara Roy from Harvard and Mona abu Ramadan, aid worker living in Gaza on a conference call held today, July 16, 2009. 87 were on the call. It was powerful and disturbing to hear of the plight of Gaza's children from Ms. abu Ramadan and angering to hear from Dr. Roy about Israel's role in making Gazans' life one of destitution.
