Jewish Voices
Jewish voices israel palestine

The Promised Land Museum highlights Jewish perspectives about the Palestinian experience. Here we have collected profiles of Jewish voices to show the diversity of Jewish thought on Israel and Palestine. These thinkers ground their political philosophy in an understanding of the Jewish moral and ethical tradition: treating each other the way we want to be treated and protecting the human rights of all people regardless of religion.

We are continuously adding to this collection.
