Does FOSNA work with Jewish individuals or groups that promote peace?

FOSNA and Sabeel both work with individuals and groups who, with great courage, have determined that a just and peaceful solution to the conflict is in the best interests of Israel and also honors the core values of Judaism, such as that in Micah 6:8: “He has shown you, O man, what is good. And what doth the Lord require of thee? To act justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God.” 
Sabeel conferences invariably feature Jewish speakers from Israel and elsewhere, such as Ilan Pappe, Jeff Halper, Anna Baltzer, Phyllis Bennis, Josh Ruebner, Mark Braverman and Marc Ellis.

FOSNA works closely with groups such as A Jewish Voice for Peace and the Israeli Committee Against Home Demolitions. These groups, which represent the best of the Jewish ethical tradition, pave the way for a reconciliation that is pro-Israel and pro-Palestinian. Sabeel conferences are typically ecumenical and interfaith, bringing together Jewish, Christian and Muslim speakers who share a common vision of peace with justice.
