“Participating in this delegation was renewing and rooting. It allowed me to live my values as a Jew alongside other Jews from all over the world while listening deeply and acting in love and solidarity with the Palestinians who welcomed me into their homes and their struggle. This has been one of the most important experiences of my life.”

“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.”

“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.”

“We were doing it all together, the activists joined all together and brought their own expertise, they talked about their own women’s groups…This is how we have to work, bringing groups together so that all people feel that special kind of hope and trust that allows them to overcome violence.”

“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.”

“On the ground in Palestine we are building a coalition of Palestinians, Israelis, diaspora Jews, and other internationals committed to nonviolence. We are building a movement to end the occupation. And, we are making friends and building trusting relationships…”

Choose Solidarity and Coresistance for the Coming Year

Give today and help us continue our years-long and unwavering commitment to Palestinian activists in their non-violent struggle against the occupation, through building long lasting relationships and partnerships, and by bringing Jewish activists from around the world to engage in creative nonviolent activism.

This work--building partnerships and networks of solidarity--is what we need to face the challenges ahead. Partnership and coresistance upend the systems of division and oppression of Jews against Palestinians, and instead proclaims a vision solidarity, joint struggle and mutual support.

That choice is what is needed to take on the joined forces of division, bigotry and fear-mongering. When those in power choose to ostracize and oppress, we choose to link arms and struggle.

Now, as this calendar year comes to a close and the next one begins, join us in choosing solidarity and coresistance with a generous end of year contribution.

By joining in this end of year campaign and helping us reach our goal of $15,000 you are sustaining and bolstering years-long relationships and resistance work between Diaspora Jews, Palestinians and Israelis. Your commitment and investment helps strengthen and expand an unprecedented and boundary-pushing network of activists who choose solidarity and mutual liberation.

Already, in just a few weeks, another 50 Diaspora Jews will be in the West Bank standing alongside Palestinian and Israeli grassroots leaders in struggle against home demolitions and for freedom of movement and access to clean water.

After that, there will be more delegations, more opportunities to show up for our partners, and more moments to stand together and choose freedom and equality.

We all know that this doesn’t happen without countless hours spent planning, organizing, training, visioning and relationship-building. And, those hours are sustained by the support of hundreds of individuals like you and me who believe that solidarity and coresistance can upend the oppression the Israeli occupation and bring peace and justice to all of us.
