Christians Witnessing for Palestine


We're a group of Christians from several Rochester NY churches. We're working for a just resolution in Israel-Palestine.

Current goals include:

  • Continue to bring the eyewitness accounts of recent visitors to Palestine to faith communities in the Rochester area
  • Publicize presentations from two Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School students who made a study trip to Palestine/Israel in May 2019 supported by a grant obtained by Christians Witnessing for Palestine
  • Organize and present our 8th annual Witness Palestine Film Festival at The Little Theatre and St. John Fisher College
  • Donate to the Hebron Children's Summer Camp and to LEAP (Learning for the Empowerment and Advancement of Palestinians, based in Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon)
  • With our allies in Rochester's Jewish Voice for Peace, maintain a regular presence at Rochester's Public Market, selling olive oil and other products from the Canaan Cooperative of the West Bank
  • Seek opportunities for public expressions of advocacy and contact with local congressional representatives
  • Continue to recruit new members and integrate them into our work
