“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.”

“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.”

“Three or four years ago, when people came to demolish, we had no photos or videos. Now, if the bulldozers come, we have 10 people with cameras and within minutes, we have people all over the world watching. We know that people are with us…When you tell us that CJNV is returning next year, it makes me very happy because it shows you trust me. I don’t need people to come for just one year, we want a relationship that continues.”
