A week by week advent reflection/guide from the Women of Palestine
Let this be a special Advent...
As we prepare for Christmas this year let us consider places around the world where real hope for real peace continues to dwindle.
In Palestine, the Apartheid Wall and illegal settlements limit our mobility, deny us access to our natural resources, and strangulate our economy. Wherever one looks, be it the prolonged and inhuman siege in Gaza, the isolation of East Jerusalem and the fragmentation of the West Bank, the fabric… More...
Zionism Unsettled: A Congregational Study Guide
with accompanying video episodes
What role have Zionism and Christian Zionism played in shaping attitudes and driving historical developments in the Middle East and around the world? How do Christians, Jews, and Muslims understand the competing claims to the land of Palestine and Israel? What steps can be taken to bring peace, reconciliation, and justice to the homeland that Palestinians and Israelis share?
Zionism Unsettled embraces these critical issues fearlessly and with inspiring scope. The booklet and companion DVD draw together compelling and diverse viewpoints from Jews, Muslims, and Christians in Israel, Palestine, the US, and around the globe. By contrasting mainstream perceptions with important alternative perspectives frequently ignored in the media, Zionism Unsettled is an invaluable guide to deeper understanding.

Interfaith groups call for the protection of Palestinians' freedom of worship in Jerusalem
Sept.18, 2015 — We, the undersigned, come together in solidarity with Palestinians, especially those who have been prohibited from worshiping in peace and security at the Al Aqsa mosque sanctuary due to the escalation of Israeli settler violence, which is supported by the Israeli police and military.
As a diverse community and as Americans we sincerely believe in freedom of worship for all people. This is not a religious conflict between Muslims and Jews. Nor is this a conflict about access to space to pray as the settler groups have said. This is a struggle between an occupier and an occupied people. The tensions arise because of provocations from the Temple Movement, a loose coalition of several messianic, extremist Jewish… More...
Frequently Asked Questions About Divestment
Did the PC(USA) divest from Israel?
No. The PC(USA) divested from three American companies that profit from the Israeli occupation and blockade of Palestinian territory. The Church continues to invest in several companies doing business in Israel. And the 221st General Assembly reaffirmed our support for a secure and sovereign state of Israel.
Had the PC(USA) ever divested from other companies?
Yes. The PC(USA) has a longstanding investment/divestment policy that prohibits the Church from investing in any company that contributes to “human harm.” The Church does not own stock in any company that is involved in military related products, human rights violations, tobacco, or alcohol. Accordingly, the Presbyterian Church (USA) has divested from more than six… More...
Kairos Palestine is the "Letter from a Birmingham Jail" of our time. This Confession of Faith, written in 2009 by a broad spectrum of Palestinian Christian leaders, is addressed to Palestinians, Israelis, the international community--as well as all the churches of the world. It lifts up the classical theological virtues of faith, hope, and love that lie at the heart of the Christian Gospel, and affirms that resistance to injustice and oppression is firmly grounded in these principles. It is both an anguished cry in a dark hour and a profound testament to unquenchable hope.
The study plan includes informative background material on the Israel-Palestine conflict including three maps in color. This material provides essential historical, political, and theological context for the Kairos Palestine statement. The booklet is an excellent guide for readers undertaking an individual study of the document. Church-based groups will benefit from the detailed lesson plans for a three-week congregational study, inclulding a list of thought-provoking questions to stimulate reflection and discussion.
