Philadelphia Jews for a Just Peace (PJJP) is an association of Jews and allies in Greater Philadelphia working to promote a lasting peace between Israelis and Palestinians based on mutual respect, justice, and equality.  PJJP is a chapter of American Jews for a Just Peace.

PJJP projects have included a successful campaign to plant olive groves in the West Bank, developing meaningful political rituals in the Jewish tradition, collaborating with local churches in the struggle for a just peace, and creating a booklet of historical and contemporary Jewish voices that dissent from mainstream historical narratives about Israel and Palestine.

As grassroots activists, our energy is directed toward on-the-ground local political projects, events, and actions.  Updating this web site is not among our priorities.  This web site does not approach or reflect the scope of our work.
