Who We Are
JVP is a national, grassroots organization working towards Palestinian freedom and Judaism beyond Zionism. It's the largest such organization in the world.
As the right wing gathers momentum in the U.S., Israel, and globally, it can be hard to know how to respond as an individual. Tens of thousands have joined JVP because they want to make meaningful contributions to the crises of our time and know that making change takes collective power.
Being a member of a grassroots, national membership organization means joining a community of thousands of people working together towards freedom and justice for all from the U.S. to Palestine. Members are the base of JVP, and when our membership grows, the movement grows.
Becoming a member commits to your stake in the movement. It allows you to be counted. And it amplifies your power. And together, we can take action — online, in the streets, and in our communities.

We will build rooted bases of power in cities, towns, and campuses all across the U.S. Click your area on the map to see if we're there yet.
From city councils to state pension funds to student governments, we're fighting off right-wing legislation, demanding an end to government funding and support for Israeli apartheid, and growing the ranks in our communities who support Palestinian freedom as part of an intersectional, progressive agenda.
Ways to get involved
Join the Rabbinical Council
The JVP Rabbinical Council is a network of rabbis, cantors, and rabbinical students that supports the mission of JVP, our members, the Palestine solidarity movement, and each other.
Our BIJOCSM network is a cross-pollination space built for and by Black, Indigenous, Jews of Color, Sephardi and/or Mizrahi Jews to build community, identity, analysis, and power within a particular identity group or amongst the various communities of the larger network.
If you identify as a Black Jew, Indigenous Jew, Non-Black Jew of Color, Sephardi or Mizrahi, email email@example.com
Nope. Wherever you are, you are welcome to join us in our work.
We focus on the United States, however, because of the crucial role that the U.S. plays in the Middle East — including large sums of military aid that fund the Israeli occupation.
No, you don’t.
JVP is an organization that is inspired by Jewish values and traditions to work towards peace and justice.
We are committed to building an inclusive Jewish community, that, like many of our families, welcomes Jews and allies who share our values and appreciate our traditions, who advocate for an end to Israeli human rights abuses, and who oppose anti-Jewish hatred, anti-Arab racism, and Islamophobia.
You can start by joining Jewish Voice for Peace as a member.
We can refer you to a JVP chapter in your area or you can directly contact one of our organizers on our chapters page.
Not able to get involved with a local chapter? There are lots of ways to put your membership to work from wherever you are.
