|Mandy Patinkin and Homeland co-star Claire Danes|
Patinkin – who sits on the board of the NGO, which is the sister organization to Shalom Achshav, Israel's pre-eminent peace group – works to ensure Israel's future by mobilizing support for policies that Peace Now believes will lead to a long-lasting peace for the state and its neighbours.
In a statement during the ceremony directed at the writers of his beloved series, Patinkin proposed that if the peace process doesn't advance, Homeland should do a season (or a spin-off) about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Perhaps in Hollywood fiction, at least, the dream can become a reality.
Patinkin, who is also known for his singing, wrapped up his acceptance speech by leading the audience in a sing-along of the popular peace anthem by Sheva founder Moshe Ben-Ari Od Yavo Shalom Aleinu.
