Solidarity of Nations - Achvat Amim is a movement-building platform that provides frameworks and programs for young adults to engage in meaningful partnerships with Israelis and Palestinians in the movement for self-determination for all. We engage with community justice struggles at the intersections of Jewishness, feminism, racial justice, and solidarity. We were founded in 2013 by a group of Jewish educators and community organizers who believe that we are in a critical historical moment, and that what happens in Israel and Palestine with respect to the dignity and relationships between peoples is an essential challenge for us to take up if we want to honor our traditions of tzedek (justice), shalom (peace), tikkun olam(repairing the world) and achvat amim (solidarity of nations).
Achvat Amim believes in building a movement that is adaptive, effective, and informed by the wisdom of Jewish ethics. We are committed to deepening Jewish participation in larger movements for peace, justice, and equality in this region and around the world. We engage people in meaningful processes of self-examination, empowerment, and relationship building, and create spaces for communities to develop shared goals and strategies for positive social change rooted in their unique identities and traditions.
