Join Churches for Middle East Peace for 50 Years Too Long: A CMEP Advocacy Event June 4-6 in Washington, D.C.

June 2017 marks 50 years of occupation of the West Bank and Gaza, an occupation which threatens the security of Israel and imposes harsh burdens on the Palestinian people.

Participants of the summit will have the opportunity to attend two and a half days of discussions and panels comprised of leading U.S. faith leaders, peace builders and Middle East analysts as well as listen to keynote speeches from the Honorable George J. Mitchell; Ambassador Dr. Hussam S. Zomlot; and Alon Sachar.

Learn how to advocate for an end to the Israeli occupation of the West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza and put that information into practice by visiting government representatives to promote a solution that advances security and self-determination for Israelis and Palestinians. This event will culminate with a prayer service on the National Mall.
