Events, activities, and discussions.

Pursuit of justice and peace for the preservation and strengthening of a democratic Jewish Israel

Israel Peace Alternatives (IPA) consists of partners of Congregation Bet Haverim dedicated to the preservation and strengthening of a democratic Jewish Israel through the achievement of a negotiated settlement of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and adherence to the principles of freedom, justice and equality for all Israeli citizens, as articulated in the declaration of independence of the State of Israel.

We are impelled by the obligation to pursue justice and peace, placed upon us by our sacred writings as well as the best Jewish secular traditions of the past three centuries.   Our programs, which are open to all congregational partners and the public, are designed to advance these objectives through information, education, discussion and advocacy.

For programming information or to be added to our mailing list, please contact sfpattison@gmail.com.
