2017 Olive Harvest Delegation to Palestine/Israel

October 28 - November 10, 2017

Interfaith Peace-Builders is pleased to announce that our 28 member delegation to Palestine/Israel arrived at the airport Monday and is in Jerusalem.

The Olive Harvest Delegation focuses on the Palestinian harvest season and its deep cultural significance.

Follow the delegation to read delegate reflections from the grounds, reports from meetings, and experiences with Palestinians and Israelis.

Exclusive content is also available on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook under the hashtag #ifpb63.

In addition to other themes, the delegation will explore how Palestinian access to land and water is limited through illegal Israeli settlement infrastructure and Israeli military policy. 

Delegates are also meeting with Palestinian groups and communities that continue to resist and organize for their rights, as well Israelis resisting militarization and working for peace with justice.

This delegation is IFPB's 63rd, successfully exposing more than 1,200 people to the daily realities facing Palestinians in their quest for justice.

We believe in the power of eye-witness experience and transformation. Given the opportunity to speak directly with Palestinians and Israelis, delegates return to the United States better informed, more energized, and with a deeper understanding of the possibilities for true justice in the Middle East.
