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
