Jewish Voice for Peace is part of a national network of clergy and lay leaders inspired by their faith traditions to work for Justice in Palestine. In August 2015, over 50 clergy and lay leaders across a number of religious traditions gathered at the Stony Point Retreat Center to lay the foundation for the Interfaith Network for Justice in Palestine.  This video features reflections from participants of the gathering.

The Network Against Islamophobia (NAI), a project of Jewish Voice for Peace, provides support and resources for those interested in organizing against Islamophobia and anti-Arab racism and making the connections between Islamophobia and Israel politics.

NAI is facilitating online resource-sharing of FAQs, public letters, press statements, and other materials developed by NAI, individual chapters, and our allies. We seek to build connections among JVP chapters and other groups working on these issues to effectively challenge Islamophobia in our local communities and develop our thinking together. To get involved, email nai@jvp.org


In June 2014, the Presbyterian Church (USA) decided to divest from Caterpillar, Hewlett-Packard, and Motorola Solutions. JVP is proud to have worked in interfaith partnership with our Presbyterian brothers and sisters for the past decade leading to this monumental vote, which was the fruit of 10 years of intentional dialogue, corporate engagement, careful research, and travel to the region by Church leaders and members.


Several Christian denominations have taken brave, constructive decisions to investigate whether their churches’ economic ties contribute to violence and oppression in Israel and Palestine. We support these churches’ efforts to align its investments with its values. In June of 2015, the United Church of Christ voted overwhelmingly to divest from corporations that profit off the occupation.
