“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.”

“In working with CJNV this summer, I gained a deep and nuanced understanding of the situation on the ground in the Occupied Territories. I participated in inspiring nonviolent activism led by Palestinian and Israeli organizers working each and every day to end an unjust and untenable situation. And I came away with an even stronger motivation to bring what I learned and saw back to the United States, to educate my home Jewish communities about struggles that are too often ignored.”

“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.
