Many members of the Jewish community do not believe peace is a viable possibility for Israel. These people may hope for a peaceful future for the Jewish national home, but even that hope is painful and bitter. The Fund for Partnership offers a different perspective – one that views peace for Israel and its neighbors as a potential reality, not as a distant, fading dream.
Making the shift to this perspective isn't easy. It sheds lights on some of the darker aspects of the remarkable story of the founding of the state of Israel, on events and actions that are hard to believe, and on things that contradict the heroic myths that many in the Jewish community grew up with. Examining these elements can challenge the very core of our identity, both as Jews and as moral people of conscience.
It is no easy feat to accept these facts as part of the story of the founding of the State of Israel, but doing so is absolutely necessary if we are to have peace.
The Fund for Partnership helps Americans adopt perspectives that allow for a practical belief in peace, starting by accepting some of these challenging truths. We provide an opportunity for individuals and groups to face the difficult history of the Jewish state, thus beginning the transformation necessary for peace. We assist with any despair that arises and work to transform it into a sense of responsibility and power.
As people embark on this transformation, the Fund connects them to organizations in Israel who operate from perspectives of peace, and a firm belief in the reality of peace. This allows people in America to support the reality of peace for Israel and its neighbors both morally and materially.
Do you want peace? Are you willing to do what it takes to earn it? Imagine taking the first steps toward a world where Israel is at peace with its neighbors…and with itself.
