Jewish Voice for Peace is a national organization dedicated to creating a U.S. foreign policy toward Israel and Palestine that promotes justice, democracy, and universal human rights. In short, we work to help American Jews (and our allies) apply our core values to a political issue that deeply challenges many of us. Our approach integrates grassroots organizing, strategic communications, policy advocacy, education, and coalition building.

Jewish Voice for Peace does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, age, ethnicity, religion, national origin, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity, sex, marital status, disability, or status as a U.S. veteran.
