“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.”

“We were doing it all together, the activists joined all together and brought their own expertise, they talked about their own women’s groups…This is how we have to work, bringing groups together so that all people feel that special kind of hope and trust that allows them to overcome violence.”

“I am forever changed by my CJNV experience – as a Jew, an activist, and a teacher. After my participation on the winter delegation, I am convinced that co-resistance is one of the most impactful methods that shows tangible results to improve the lives of Palestinians on the ground. The nature of this organizing model builds a vibrant, intersectional, and powerful anti-occupation social movement by building trust and relationships through embodied actions. And after the delegation I am more committed than ever to CJNV, which I believe to be the most impactful organization working for justice in Palestine/Israel.”
