Public · Talk · Hosted by First Baptist Church in Jamaica Plain

Dr. Jeff Halper of the Israeli Committee Against Home Demolitions (ICAHD) will lead a discussion around building a bi-national, secular, democratic state in Israel/Palestine.  Dr. Halper has been a peace and human rights activist for more than three decades. He co-founded ICAHD in 1997 to challenge and resist the Israeli policy of demolishing Palestinian homes.

As the Coordinating Director of ICAHD, Dr. Halper has organized and led nonviolent direct action and civil disobedience against Israel’s occupation policies and authorities. He has put his own personal safety on the line, facing bulldozers in front of Palestinian homes and confronting Israeli soldiers. He also organizes Israelis, Palestinians, and internationals to help rebuild demolished Palestinian homes.
