Playground in Memory of Cynthia Laitman

On February 19, 2010, Cynthia Laitman passed away after battling brain cancer. Many felt the loss of a committed activist but of course, many more mourn the loss of a family member and friend.

Cynthia's sister Judith is raising funds to build a playground in Palestine to honor Cynthia's memory. Cynthia's commitment to social justice near and far makes this a fitting tribute to her life and passions. Playgrounds for Palestine-Madison is honored to be able to contribute to her legacy.

A total of $10,000 will be raised to make this a reality. If you would like to participate, please email us at pfpmadison AT (replace AT with @) to find out more, or contact Judith Laitman directly at jlaitman AT (replace AT with @).
