Delegations to Palestine

Nakba Day

May 10 - 22

Every year on 15 May, Palestinians around the world remember the Nakba, or Catastrophe, which refers to the ethnic cleansing of Palestine in 1948. In 2023, it will mark its 75th anniversary. 

This delegation will have a chance to visit historic Jerusalem, hear the stories from several refugee camps in the West Bank, and then make your way to al Khalil/Hebron to accompany the CPT team in providing a protective presence for the community. You will build relationships with community members and share stories and meals. We will learn together on our journey of undoing oppression and focus on its centrality in the movement of solidarity, peace, justice, and a free Palestine.

No matter your background or experience, join this delegation and get ready for great conversations and opportunities to work in solidarity with the Palestinian community.

Multifaith Peacemaking

September 27 - October 9

This delegation will be led by a Pastor and a Rabbi, where we will focus on direct action and support of Palestinians through our diverse faith experiences. We will help families with shepherding, provide protective presence and accompaniment for Bedouins and Palestinians in the South Hebron Hills, and support the CPT team in al Khalil/Hebron by joining checkpoint observation and community patrols. 

We’ll have the opportunity to build relationships with community members, share stories and meals, and discern together as a delegation ways to further decolonize our thinking and our belief systems. No matter your background or experience, join a delegation and get ready for great conversations and opportunities to work in solidarity with the Palestinian community.

Olive Harvest

November 3 - 15

Olive trees are a symbol of Palestinian resistance and permanence on their land. The olive harvest season brings Palestinian families together and reminds them of the importance of defending and preserving their homeland. Join this delegation to learn how the Israeli occupation makes the yearly harvest harder for these families, and also experience Palestinian joy in the communities in H2 and the South Hebron Hills.

Also as part of this delegation, wander through Jerusalem’s alleyways, visit refugee camps in Bethlehem, participate in a special Palestinian tour of the Ibrahimi mosque in Hebron, and eat Kanafeh Nabulsi. You will meet Palestinians of various religions, including Muslims, Christians, Jews, and Samaritans and learn of their shared stories of collective liberation.

You will live and work with the CPT Palestine team, joining us on our tours and family visits, and participating in school monitoring, documentation, and partnership-building. We will learn together in undoing oppression sessions and focus on its centrality in the movement of solidarity, peace, justice, and a free Palestine. No matter your background or experience, join this delegation and get ready for great conversations and opportunities to work in solidarity with the Palestinian community.

This year Palestinians in al Khalil/Hebron will mark the 29th anniversary of the Ibrahimi Massacre that occurred on 25 February 1995 and resulted in the further militarization and apartheidization of al Khalil/Hebron’s old city. The annual event will protest the closure of Shuhada Street where, it is hoped, hundreds of people will gather in solidarity. This delegation will link communities experiencing the violence and oppression of the Israeli apartheid with individuals and groups who are looking to better understand and enter into deeper solidarity with the Palestinian struggle for freedom. Delegates will experience a first-hand experience of CPT’s on-the-ground experiment in partnerships for non-violent action. 

Also on this delegation, participants will join CPT members in providing protective presence and accompaniment for Bedouins in the South Hebron Hills and support the CPT team in Hebron with checkpoint observation, documentation, and school patrols. Delegates will build relationships with community members, share stories and meals, and discern together as a delegation ways to further decolonize our thinking and belief systems. No matter your background or experience, join this delegation and get ready for great conversations and opportunities to work in solidarity with the Palestinian community.
