May Campaign 2019

45 Jewish activists from across North America gathered in Israel-Palestine to stand in coresistance with our Palestinian and Israeli partners. Over nine days, we learned, worked, and connected with partners in the South Hebron Hills, East Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Ramallah, Givat Amal, and Lyd/Lod. Together, we cleared roads, laid concrete, painted murals, rehabilitated land, planted trees and built relationships rooted in resistance that will carry this work forward.

Justice Justice You Shall Pursue

In May 2017, in response to 50 years since the beginning of the occupation of the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem, CJNV brought an unprecedented cohort of 130 Jewish justice seekers to the West Bank and East Jerusalem to participate in a week of shoulder-to-shoulder solidarity work in various Palestinian communities and culminated in a 300-person joint civil disobedience action, Sumud: Freedom Camp.

Occupation is Not Our Judaism

In July 2016 forty Jewish activists from more than half a dozen countries spent 10 days in solidarity and nonviolent resistance with Palestinian communities throughout the West Bank.  We joined with Youth Against Settlements–a Palestinian nonviolent direct action group in Hebron–and members of All That’s Left: Anti-Occupation Collective to reclaim stolen property in Hebron and build the first cinema in the city.

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.
