“CJNV delegations are made up of one precious and poignant moment after another. The quality of the action planning and coordination was great so I felt ready to put myself in harm’s way to defend Palestinians’ rights to the land. I have met a lot of amazing people on delegations. CJNV trips definitely add personal and powerful fuel to the fire of my work for justice for Palestine.”

“This is a trip I would recommend to any Jewish or non-Jewish person. There is nothing as good as being there to understand what the Occupation is truly like. The opportunity to engage in authentic solidarity activism is so rare, and felt like sacred work that had a healing effect on both us international folks and local Israelis and Palestinians. The trip renewed my commitment to anti-occupation work in the American Jewish community.”

“This experience left me deeply troubled, but also more hopeful then ever. I feel so grateful for this opportunity to see more fully the reality of the occupation and to be part of a brave, vibrant, brilliant community of people — Palestinians, Israelis, and international Jews — who are actively working to dismantle it. I feel renewed in my conviction that Occupation is NOT my Judaism, and that the work defining what IS my Judaism has tremendous spiritual, communal, and political potency for liberation.”
