Palestine Projects

About CPT Palestine

CPT Palestine is a faith-based organization that supports Palestinian-led, nonviolent, grassroots resistance to the Israeli occupation and the unjust structures that uphold it.  By collaborating with local Palestinian and Israeli peacemakers and educating people in our home communities, we help create a space for justice and peace.

We maintain a project in the southern West Bank city of Hebron (Al-Khalil in Arabic).

Pinwheels for Peace


Pictured here: The NGO Rebuilding Alliance led an activity for the children of Susiya—a village in the South Hebron Hills under imminent threat of demolition by Israeli authorities. The activity consisted of drawing the meaning of peace in a square piece of paper that was turned into a pinwheel, and pinned on a pencil.

God did not make death, and he does not delight in the death of the living.  For he created all things so that they might
exist; the generative forces of the world are wholesome, and there is no destructive poison in them, and the dominion
of Hades  is not on earth. Wisdom of Solomon 1:13-14
