LJJIP Statement of Intent

LJJIP is a network of Jews within Liberal Judaism committed to social justice and the application of universal human rights to Jews and Palestinians in Palestine/Israel.

  1. We believe the core values of Liberal Judaism provide the basis of this commitment, and that as Liberal Jews we have a duty to speak out in relation to all breaches of human rights.
  2. We support initiatives that enable both Jews and Palestinians to live in freedom, security, democracy and dignity.
  3. We are concerned about the corrosive impact of the occupation, settlements and discrimination on Palestinian and Israeli society, and the negative impact this has on prospects for a peaceful and just resolution between Jews and Palestinians.
  4. We aim to promote constructive dialogue amongst Liberal Jews regarding human rights and justice in Palestine/Israel and to help shape opinion in Liberal Judaism.

Our goals are:

  • to provide a space for constructive dialogue on Israel/Palestine within Liberal Judaism, both nationally and locally in our own LJ communities;
  • to educate and inform ourselves and other Liberal Jews on human rights abuses and injustices in Palestine/Israel;
  • to use our voice as Liberal Jews to speak out against human rights abuses and injustices in Israel/Palestine;
  • to listen to, promote and amplify the voices of progressive Palestinians and Israelis;
  • to work with other organisations towards common aims.
