“I was deeply moved by my experience with the Center for Jewish Nonviolence. I thought I might leave Israel and Palestine more confused than when I arrived — unable to hold the seeming contradictions and all of the complexity and pain that comes with them. But surprisingly, I left feeling more whole than when I arrived, with each of these truths stored in my body in the form of conversations, smells and sounds, faces, and the land itself.”

“The kids got the feeling that there are people who come to support them, to give them confidence and security, to say we are with you and we won’t accept that your houses will be taken or your lives will be threatened. We stand with you.”

“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.”
