“The CJNV trip provided an opportunity to be in authentic and continuing solidarity with many groups of courageous Palestinians nonviolent and proactively resisting the occupation. I learned and unlearned more than I ever would have imagined. It resituated my thinking and orientation at a deep level, deepening my commitments to anti-occupation activism.”

“My experience of the trip was profound. It brought out many of the nuances, ambivalences, and difficulties of doing this work as a Jew. It was important to me that our actions were led and directed by Palestinians, and this was something that CJNV seemed to prioritise. Making justice and solidarity work real is tremendously hard, and impossible to do perfectly, but this trip felt like an attempt to undertake coalitional, and internationalist, action alongside Palestinians in the most ethical way possible. It was exciting and enriching to be a part of it.”
