Middle East Working Group

Our work in support of a just peace between Israel and the Palestinian people is guided by principles developed by the Middle East Working Group and adopted by the Board of Boston Workmen’s Circle:

  • Ending the occupation
  • Establishing two viable states, a homeland for the Jewish people and a homeland for the Palestinian people
  • An end to the violence on all sides
  • Making room for a diversity of views

We are proud to stand up as a progressive voice on Israel/Palestine in the Greater Boston Jewish
community. But that doesn’t mean we all agree on the path to security and peace. We strive to foster an open and respectful environment in which a range of views can be aired and discussed. Through educational programs, dialogue groups, and membership forums, we grapple with many of the tough issues Jews face today concerning the Israeli/Palestinian conflict.
