An Occupation Free Faith Community commits to take specific advocacy steps to bring about a just peace in Israel/Palestine. Occupation Free Congregations can be churches, mosques, synagogues, or temples. Or they can be particular committees, taskforces, or boards within these communities that focus on Israel/Palestine or on peace and social justice issues. They can be Bible study groups, clergy groups, or campus ministries. Or they can be regional groupings of faith communities, or interfaith organizations.
Regardless of size, they are an integral part of the effort to change U.S. policy and bring about a just peace in Israel/Palestine.
