In the Beginning: The Jewish Peace Movement 1967-69

Posted on

This is the first installment of a 50-year timeline of American Jewish and Israeli peace activism since 1967 from the American Jewish Peace Archive (AJPA). Each entry begins with a background section summarizing major regional events during those years.

A special thanks to the many peace pioneers who shared their stories, enabling us to recount the long history of this movement for the first time. The Israeli entries were identified through AJPA interviews, Mordechai Bar-On’s book, In Pursuit of Peace: A History of the Israeli Peace Movement, and recommendations from longtime Israeli peace activist Hillel Schenker, Co-Editor of the Palestine-Israel Journal.
