Divest for Peace. Invest in the Future.

Lev Hirshhorn

We Are Inspired by Your Courage
Having escaped Vienna in 1938, my grandparents taught me that Jews must stand against injustice everywhere. As a Jewish service core member, I am committed to working for justice within my own community. I am inspired by the Presbyterian Church (USA)’s courage in working to ensure that its policies reflect its own commitment to social witness.

Bekah Wolf

Let Our Children Inherit a More Peaceful World
As a Jewish American married to a Muslim Palestinian farmer, I know the value of interfaith relationships based on love and compassion. I have seen, with my own eyes, the Motorola security cameras surrounding the settlements built on my husband’s land. Investment alone, without divestment from oppression, will not ensure a more peaceful world for our daughter.

Elisha Baskin

Help Israelis Like Me Pursue Peace in the Holy Land
As an Israeli Jew, I don’t want to see anymore of my neighbor’s homes destroyed by Catepillar bulldozers. I don’t want to be separated from my friends by Motorola and HewlettPackard technology. Thank you for standing with those whose voices have so long been silenced.

Rabbi Brian Walt

Support Jewish and Palestinian Friendship
I grew up in a fiercely and passionately Zionist family in South Africa. I witnessed the destruction that comes from hate and oppression. Today, I know that the future of Jews, Christians, and Muslims in the Holy Land depends upon ending our support for the occupation.

Hedy Epstein

As a Holocaust Survivor, I Support Divestment
I grew up in Nazi occupied Germany, and both my parents were killed in Auschwitz. I know how important it is to stand up against injustice before it’s too late. We need to do more than just condemn occupation. We need to divest.

Rabbi Lynn Gottlieb

It’s Not Kosher to Profit from Violence
As one of the first ten women rabbis, I have pursued conflict transformation in Israel/Palestine for 45 years. The Torah instructs us, “Love thy neighbor as thyself.” As one human family, we should work for peace, not profit from violence.
