The World Council of Churches is inviting member churches and related organizations to join a week of advocacy and action for a just peace in Palestine and Israel. Those who share the hope of justice are invited to take peaceful actions, together, to create a common international public witness.

During the World Week for Peace in Palestine Israel, from 29 May to 4 June 2010, churches in different countries send a clear signal to policy-makers, interested publics and their own parishes about the urgent need for a peace settlement that secures the legitimate rights and future of both peoples. Participants are requested to plan their activities around these points:

  1. Pray with churches living under occupation, using a special prayer from Jerusalem.
  2. Educate about actions that make for peace and about facts on the ground that do not, especially, settlements in occupied territory.
  3. Advocate with political leaders using ecumenical policies that promote peace with justice.
