  • 6-8-2014 Petition FOR divestment - Rabbis send letter to commissioners.

    • This initiative is from Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP). "To our Presbyterian friends: We support your efforts to align your investments with your values. We share the same values: a belief in justice and equality, and a strong conviction that as long as one nation occupies another, neither can enjoy true peace. We salute the church’s will to divest from companies that profit from the Israeli occupation.

Personal video statements: Why I support divestment.

Other actions of the Middle East Issues Committee included:

  • approving a new study to reconsider the denomination’s support for a “two-state solution”;

  • rejecting a call to boycott all Hewlett-Packard products;
  • approving a resolution for “equal rights for all inhabitants of Israel and Palestine”;
