See the West Bank with T’ruah and Breaking the Silence

Note: T’ruah is not offering our annual clergy trips in 2021. If you are interested in visiting the West Bank while you are in Israel, see Breaking the Silence’s tour schedule.

Puk Chazi: “Go and See.” That’s the advice the Talmud sometimes gives regarding a puzzling question. Go see what is going on. See what the people are doing.

Spend a day getting a close-up view of the current situation in the West Bank, learning from both Palestinians and Israel Defense Force veterans who have served there. T’ruah partners with Breaking the Silence—an organization of veteran combatants who have served in the Israeli military—to expose the public to the reality of everyday life in the occupied Palestinian territories.

In our complex conversations about Israel inside and outside of the Jewish community, it is crucial to bring a range of perspectives and experiences that can help us understand the situation and find ways to move toward peace, justice, and safety for both Palestinians and Israelis.
