“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

The world you want to see is built on connection.

CJNV's theory of change is simple: we believe that effective, principled and lasting nonviolent resistance to occupation and injustice can only emerge from authentic and long-term relationships between Palestinians, Israeli Jews and international Jews.

But cultivating relationships takes time, intention, and care. They can't just happen online. And they can't happen just once a year.

Help us answer this call from our partner Nasser, from A-Tuwani:
We crossed a threshold and we feel very strong. Across the region everyone is ready for another action and ready for even stronger actions. Everyone is asking when we will do a project with them.
