Jewish Peace Fellowship

Jewish Peace Fellowship (JPF) is a Jewish voice in the peace community and a peace voice in the Jewish community. JPF was founded in 1941 to support Jewish conscientious objectors to the military, to help educate local draft boards, normally accustomed only to the Christian roots of conscientious objection, taking the position on conscientious objection, grounded in Torah, Talmud, and other sacred and religious texts. JPF continues to support Jewish resistance, individual and communal, to the arms race in the United States and Israel and throughout the world. They actively oppose capital punishment, conscription, the Israeli occupation, and U.S. armed interventions including the former Yugoslavia (1999). They recognize that there can be no peace without justice, and no justice without reconciliation, so they also support and work with groups in social justice activities as well as peace, reconciliation, and non-violence.
