Bekah Wolf would like to speak to us about the Palestine Solidarity Project, which she founded with her husband and other Palestinian farmers in 2006. As is her personal story, PSP is unique: PSP is organized and run by Palestinian farmers and goes beyond the efforts of isolated villages like Bil'in in that it is building a mass movement of Palestinians; PSP crosses political party lines.

Bekah Wolf will be asking for financial support for the Palestine Solidarity Project after her presentations. Therefore, if you are so inclined, don't forget to bring your checkbooks with you when you come to hear Bekah!

About Bekah Wolf:

Bekah Wolfe was born in New Mexico in 1980, and grew up a practicing Jew. Her father is a synagogue cantor and her twin sister is a rabbi in California.

In 2006 Bekah Wolf moved to Palestine to settle in the West Bank agricultural village of Beit Ommar, which is near Hebron. Bekah worked with the Palestinian farmers in the village to organize a non-violent struggle against settler attacks and dispossession of their lands by the Israeli occupation – a tough task in the settler-heavy region of Hebron.

Bekah’s work is unique in that it involves sustained, rather than short-term, activism. Bekah has settled in West Bank, living permanently in the village where she recently married Mousa Abu Maria, a Palestinian farmer with whom she organizes the village's resistance to settlers and occupation.

The Palestinian Solidarity Project is an enormous undertaking. Bekah and her team's success in the villages close to Hebron provide a great model from which we can learn, from which we can work and from which we can all be inspired.
