Israel and Palestine

Our goals

We resist all forms of militarism, social and economic injustice by creating international support for nonviolent conflict transformation
An archive of FOR's work from 2008 to 2014.

Current FOR status: Discontinued.

The Fellowship of Reconciliation has a long history of leading delegations to Israel and Palestine to educate participants about the nature of the conflict and support the work of building bridges of reconciliation between people. This effort takes place within the framework of resisting all forms of militarism, racism and economic injustice and creating international support for nonviolent conflict transformation.  

The first FOR interfaith delegation to the Middle East took place in June, 1975 under the leadership of Alan Solomonow. In 1998, under the guidance of Doug Hostetter, Interfaith Peace Builders was established to continue our partnership with organizations practicing nonviolent resistance to settlement expansion, home demolition, checkpoints and military incursions.  In 2006 the IFPB became an independent organization with the support of FOR

Recently, changing conditions on the ground have given rise to new directions in the movement building and solidarity work of the Fellowship of Reconciliation. The recently reconstituted Palestine Israel working group of the Middle East Task force takes direction from FOR’s new campaign: Demilitarizing Life & Land. As part of this campaign, FOR sponsors three week Artist Delegations to Israel/Palestine to create a community based partnership with community centeres through mural arts.


In January 2003, I joined an Interfaith Peace-Builders delegation to Lebanon, Jordan, Palestine, and Israel.

Anti-refugee and anti-Muslim rhetoric is out of control. Entire groups of human beings are being marginalized.

This needs to stop immediately.
