We are an interfaith clergy network committed to shared study and action in support of reconciliation between Palestinians and Israelis.



IP4P began in 2014 and was designed to heal the emerging breach between Jewish and Christian clergy and communities when discussing the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians. IP4P would help rebuild civil, centrist discourse in a conversation that had come to be defined by its extremes. Today IP4P runs a study, travel and advocacy program co-chaired by Rev. Dr. Peter Pettit of Muhlenberg College’s Institute for Jewish-Christian Understanding and Rabbi Leonard Gordon.
