Achvat Amim - Solidarity of Nations

Achvat Amim ("Solidarity of Nations" in Hebrew) is a unique five month volunteer program based in Jerusalem, for participants ages 21 to 30, that directly engages with the reality of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through grassroots human rights work and critical education, based on the core value of self-determination for all peoples. Our vision is a reality of peace, justice, and self-determination for all peoples in this land, within a framework where the full human, civil, and political rights of all people and peoples are recognized and actualized. As experienced community organizers in Israel-Palestine, we know that the best way to approach challenging social and political problems is to engage people in meaningful processes of self-examination, empowerment, and relationship building. In parallel, we need to create spaces for communities to develop shared goals and strategies for positive social change, rooted in their unique identities and traditions. Our mission is to build a movement to support self-determination for all peoples, starting with an empowered and educated Jewish community which acts in partnership and solidarity with Palestinians and Israelis. As Jewish educators and activists, we have identified three strategies: 1. transform our own Jewish community to act from a place of empathy, compassion and meaningful identity, 2. bring more people into the movement, in partnership and solidarity with Palestinians and Israelis, and 3. develop leaders within the movement for self-determination for all people and peoples. Achvat Amim's methods - sustained processes of living, learning, and working in partnership across various divisions - allow growing relationships of trust and solidarity to emerge between participants, partner organizations, and staff, between Israelis, Palestinians and others.
