Palestine Israel Network 
12 February 2015


Dear Friends and Colleagues,


Last call: The Palestine Israel Network, in its founding statement, dedicated itself to establishing a network 'advocating for a more robust Episcopal Church witness for justice and peace for our Palestinian and Israeli brothers and sisters.'  We based this on

In a faithful response to our founding call, former and present members of the EPF Palestine Israel Network steering committee, its work groups and founding members, invite you, sister and brother Episcopalians, to join us in signing this statement of conscience if you haven't already done so.  We'll be closing it out for signatures on Ash Wednesday 18 February 2015.


Educational opportunities

  • Check out the video (and there's a transcript as well) of The Palestine Center's program 'The Role of the US Churches in the BDS Movement' here.  On 24 February, the Center has a program 'On Ferguson & Palestine: The Issues of Repression and Race.' Check it out here.
  • There are many ways of doing the work on Palestine/Israel.  Interfaith Peace Builders offers a different sort of interfaith pilgrimage.  Learn more about the July delegation and the application process here.

And a reminder of some ongoing campaigns in which you can participate:

  • No Way to Treat a Child, a campaign supported by several of our allies in the work, has a Facebook page Israeli Military Detention: No Way to Treat A Child.  Check the campaign website for more information and a toolkit.
  • Is there a ReMax office in your community?  Check this out for all the information you'll need to organize a campaign Boycott Re/Max: No Open House on Stolen Land! 

If you'd like to get these emails and you are not an EPF or EPF PIN member or are not an Episcopalian, check this link and check off to get the PIN complimentary list.  Note also that you can contact members of the steering committee by clicking on their name in the sidebar.
