January 2014 Middle East Witness Delegation
The Presbyterian Peace Fellowship is seeking passionate young adults with a commitment to justice and peacemaking to participate in a delegation to Palestine and Israel in January 2014. Participants will experience the realities of life in the Holy Land – the occupations, settlements, and peace efforts -- by meeting with those living there. Those who attend will be expected to be ambassadors for justice at the mid-June 2014 General Assembly in Detroit. Additionally, participants will be asked to make a commitment to work as advocates for the end of the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and control of the Gaza Strip, and for security for both Israelis and Palestinians.
The delegation will consist of a two-day orientation at Stony Point Center in New York, facilitated by a representative from Inter Faith Peace Builders, followed by ten days on the ground in Palestine and Israel. While in the region participants will meet with Israeli and Palestinian peace groups as well as visit the holy sites in Bethlehem, Jerusalem, and the Galilee.
