Interfaith Network for Justice in Palestine Delegation to Israel and Palestine

Saturday, July 22, 2017Friday, August 4, 2017

 

What: An interfaith delegation to Palestine and Israel sponsored by American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP), and Presbyterian Peace Fellowship (PPF). This trip is designed to provide direct experience for a multi-religious group of U.S. participants committed to direct advocacy and nonviolent direct action for peace and justice in Palestine/Israel. 

Who: Those interested in deepening their understanding of the realities of Palestinian life under occupation and inside of Israel as part of a multifaith delegation. The delegation will include people of spirit and conscience who are Muslims, Christians, Jews, Sikhs, Buddhists, Hindus, and people of other faiths. Delegates are not required to be a part of or actively engaged in a particular religious community. Priority will be given to Palestinians, Arabs, Muslims,Black, Indigenous, and other people of color to ensure this delegation centers the experiences of those targeted by systemic racism, displacement and occupation.

Cost: $2700 Ground Fee includes 10 days on the ground: overnight  accommodations, breakfasts and dinners, local transportation, guides, speaker/event fees, basic tips and gratuities. The cost does not include domestic and international airfare. We work with a local travel agent in Jerusalem to secure the best group rates for the delegation to travel together to Palestine/Israel. (We expect the international airfare to be about $1300.) Delegates do not need to book their own international airfare. Scholarships for up to half of the amount of the trip, including international airfare, are available.

Goals: To create geographically centered multifaith teams of delegates who would, together upon their return, engage in education and advocacy by speaking to individuals, organizations and/or communities about their experiences; and lay groundwork for long-term partnerships between communities and/or grassroots organizations in the U. S. and in Palestine/Israel.

The application is now closed.
