A Peace Movement is Born

Peace Now was founded in 1978 during the peace talks with Egypt. At the time, when these talks broke down and it seemed that the parties will not reach an agreement, a group of 384 combat soldiers and officers signed the ״Officers’ Letter״ – an open letter to then-Prime Minister Menachem Begin calling him to utilize the window of opportunity. Tens of thousands of Israelis supported the letter, and the movement was born.
