Alice's Palestinian Solidarity Mission
Organized by: Alice Mishkin
Growing up, I brought tzedakah to Hebrew School every week. I dropped my quarters in a white box with the Israeli flag wrapped around it. I was helping plant trees in Israel.
Now, I want to help plant trees in Palestine.
I am going to Palestine in February to join a tree planting and solidarity mission with the Center for Jewish Nonviolence. On May 19, 2014, the Israeli government uprooted 1,500 fruit trees and grapevines from the Tent of Nations, a farm and community center in the West Bank, south of Bethlehem. You can read more about the Tent of Nations and the Israeli government's destruction of trees in Palestine here: http://www.momentmag.com/fate-fruit-trees/.
I believe it is important for Jewish American people who oppose the occupation to have a visible presence of solidarity in Palestine. I believe Jewish Americans have a moral responsibility to use nonviolent strategies to resist the Israeli government's destruction of Palestinian property.
Please help support me as we work towards a just and lasting peace for all people living in the land. All funds raised will go to travel and program fees. Any remaining funds will go to recovery and rebuilding efforts in Gaza.
Thanks for your support!
