Eyewitness Occupation: Report Back from Palestine/Israel (Boston)

  • Encuentro 5 9 Hamilton Place, Suite 2a Boston (map)

Event Page

In November 2015, as the media focused on an upsurge of violent attacks in East Jerusalem and the occupied West Bank, several Massachusetts residents traveled to Israel and the occupied West Bank as part of an Interfaith Peace-Builders delegation.

What does nearly a half century of Israeli occupation look like on the ground?  Where is the current dynamic of resistance and repression likely to lead?  What hopes are there for peace with justice in the region?

The following IFPB delegates will share their impressions and experiences:


Ann Glick, United for Justice with Peace

Lauren Jappe, Jewish Voice for Peace - Boston

Duncan McFarland, United for Justice with Peace

Nancy Murray, Co-leader, IFPB delegation

Tali Ruskin, Jewish Voice for Peace - Boston

Sponsored by United for Justice with Peace. Co-sponsored by Boston Alliance for Water Justice, Boston Coalition for Palestinian Rights, Cambridge to Bethlehem People to People Project, Women's International League for Peace & Freedom - Boston
