Our delegations are the core of Interfaith Peace-Builders’ work. We started our delegation program in 2000 because we believed that justice in Israel/Palestine does not need to be complex. We started the program because Israelis and Palestinians invited us into their homes, offices, and places of worship to learn from them about their lives.
Today, our delegations continue as a testament to the transformative power of learning directly from those living in Israel/Palestine.
IFPB delegations expose participants to perspectives that are not readily available in North America. Meetings with diverse representatives of Palestinian and Israeli society focus particularly on those working nonviolently for a resolution to the conflict and an end to the occupation.
Delegates see the Wall, checkpoints, and demolished homes and learn how these and much more affect Palestinians. Likewise, delegates hear from Israelis about the effects of the conflict on Israeli society. The experiential learning that the delegation fosters is intended to motivate action for change when delegates return. IFPB provides materials, support, and mentoring to help returning delegates make the most of their experience.
