Statement of Purpose

Palestinian and Jewish Egalitarian Team

The purpose of PAJET is to promote discussion and action among our members and in the broader community based on our eight agreed upon principles concerning a just and peaceful settlement of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. This includes:

  • Monthly membership dialogues to deepen our understanding of each other’s perspectives and commitments, and to explore possible solutions to the conflict and/or issues of domestic intolerance. These dialogues are conducted in accordance with PAJET’s agreed upon ground rules.

  • Consideration of opportunities for public actions by the group consistent with PAJET’s principles.

  • One-on-one and small-group outreach to our respective communities to encourage broader discussions and bolder actions.

  • Promotion of community forums, visiting speakers, and media coverage of different perspectives to bring broader public attention to the human impact of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict.
