“In working with CJNV this summer, I gained a deep and nuanced understanding of the situation on the ground in the Occupied Territories. I participated in inspiring nonviolent activism led by Palestinian and Israeli organizers working each and every day to end an unjust and untenable situation. And I came away with an even stronger motivation to bring what I learned and saw back to the United States, to educate my home Jewish communities about struggles that are too often ignored.”

“It was not a show – cleaning a field that wasn’t clean for 20 years, carrying in huge amounts of materials, challenging the soldiers, opening the area right beneath Baruch Marzel’s house. The family can walk now, with trash and barbed wire removed. The family felt it, they knew it wasn’t photo ops.”

“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.”
