Gateway to Understanding

The Jewish Museum of the Palestinian Experience was founded to provide a Jewish perspective on the Israel/Palestine conflict. The Jewish perspective is rooted in Jewish values, to treat our neighbor as we would want to be treated.

Peaceful Palestine

The term Palestine, or similar variation, has historically been used to refer to the land between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea.

Creation of State

Between 1917 and 1947, there is a growing discourse of “colonization” of Palestine. Jewish groups like the Stern Gang worked to rid Palestine of British authorities who were restricting immigration of Jews.

Terror + Conflicts

While Palestine was a largely peaceful, multi-faith region, the early 1900s would see far more deaths, including by terrorist attacks–by both Arab and Jewish groups.

Civil Rights

The Jewish people have a long history of persecution, and this persecution has led to a Jewish commitment to civil rights.

An evolving view

FOR PALESTINIANS AND ISRAELIS
Most of us have deeply held moral beliefs that tell us not to mistreat other people. In Judaism, this is known as the Golden Rule. Rabbi Hillel the Elder once said “to which is hateful to you, do not do to your fellow.
