An initiative of Combined Jewish Philanthropies (CJP) and Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Boston (JCRC), Boston Partners for Peace is aimed at fostering a climate of tolerance and trust between Israelis and Palestinians through economic and social partnerships that create the conditions on the ground to advance the cause of peace.
We believe that partnerships are more powerful than any military action or economic sanction, and they have the potential to change history. We support non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that are building a shared future among Palestinians, Israeli Jews and Israeli Arabs, in four critical areas: economic cooperation, civic engagement, education and people-to-people.
More specifically, we support organizations that promote:
- A vision of a shared and peaceful future among Israelis and Palestinians based on people-to-people initiatives.
- Cooperation and development initiatives, including joint efforts that foster sustainable economic growth and social development in disadvantaged areas.
- Cross-cultural community-building, including social and cultural activities, programs and institutions that promote stronger relations.
