Many people feel a powerful spiritual and historic connection to Israel and its holy sites. The conflict between Israelis and Palestinians is an issue of great concern. Most people of faith support a just and peaceful future for Israelis and Palestinians. There are some, however, who support efforts to delegitimize Israel and its right to exist as a Jewish state — often relying on troubling theology.
We work with interfaith allies to build deeper understanding of a complex regional situation and discuss constructive peacemaking and dialogue efforts in the Middle East.
We also serve as a link between the Christian and Jewish communities, working to advance peace in churches across North America.
