“I was deeply moved by my experience with the Center for Jewish Nonviolence. I thought I might leave Israel and Palestine more confused than when I arrived — unable to hold the seeming contradictions and all of the complexity and pain that comes with them. But surprisingly, I left feeling more whole than when I arrived, with each of these truths stored in my body in the form of conversations, smells and sounds, faces, and the land itself.”

“The trip did so much to show us the lived experience of Palestinians, but also to problematize and not hide any of the complicated aspects of our own interactions in this space as outsiders. I was inspired by the incredible Palestinian activists we worked with and feel energized to bring this work back to the US.”

“Three or four years ago, when people came to demolish, we had no photos or videos. Now, if the bulldozers come, we have 10 people with cameras and within minutes, we have people all over the world watching. We know that people are with us…When you tell us that CJNV is returning next year, it makes me very happy because it shows you trust me. I don’t need people to come for just one year, we want a relationship that continues.”
