Applications to join our next cohort of Hineinu, our 4-month sustained solidarity project in Masafer Yatta, are open until December 1!
In May 2023, 40 Jewish activists from the US, Canada, and the UK joined together for 10 days to learn and take action in solidarity with Palestinians across Jerusalem / Al-Quds and Masafer Yatta.
CJNV brings Jewish activists from around the world to Israel/Palestine to join in Palestinian-led nonviolent civil resistance to occupation, apartheid, and displacement.
One of CJNV’s major contributions is to lift up and amplify Palestinian voices and resistance. Toward this end, our work has garnered significant international media attention.
“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.”
“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.”
“CJNV’s work is unique…we believe in being a movement of leaders, in using our diversity as our strength, and in loving each other fiercely. We know that there is no substitute for being in community, with Palestinians and Israelis, on the ground.”
