In August 2015, a group of 11 Jews and Christians—including some from the Tikkun Olam Havurah and Germantown Mennonite Church—visited Palestine and Israel.  Participants and photographers Lowell Brown, Matt Feldman and Harvey Finkle documented the trip, and selected photos comprise this exhibit. The trip was facilitated by Christian Peacemaker Teams, “a faith-based organization that supports Palestinian-led, nonviolent, grassroots resistance to the Israeli occupation and the unjust structures that uphold it.”

 The group visited sites in Jerusalem, the West Bank and Negev Desert, and spoke with Muslim, Jewish and Christian individuals and organizations working for peace.  Although at times Israelis hosted the group, its primary intention was to hear Palestinian stories.
