Delegations to Palestine/Israel
The Israeli Committee Against House Demolition (ICAHD) Summer Camps brings activists from around the world gather to rebuild a Palestinian home and learn first-hand about the “facts on the ground” of 40-plus years of Occupation. The Summer Rebuilding program includes presentations from key organizations, artists, activists and intellectuals working for a just peace in Palestine and Israel; films and other cultural works focusing on various aspects of the conflict; and tours to several locations within the Occupied Territories, including parts of Jerusalem, and to cities in Israel. For further information regarding this experience, please contact ICAHD-USA’s Summer Camp Coordinator: firstname.lastname@example.org and in the UK contact: email@example.com.
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. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

Alternative travel in the Holy Land provides an added benefit to pilgrimage by connecting you with the Living Stones of Palestine who live under military occupation. Visit the holy Christian sites, worship in ancient Palestinian Christian churches, walk where Jesus walked and bear witness to the realities of occupation — military checkpoints, refugee camps, Israel’s Apartheid Wall, bypass roads, illegal settlements and more.
