Bekah Wolf
FOUNDER OF PALESTINIAN
SOLIDARITY PROJECT
Bekah Wolf, a Jewish American (see below), will speak to us about the Palestinian Solidarity Project
http://palestinesolidarityproject.org/, which she founded with her husband and other Palestinian farmers in 2006. Her personal story and PSP are unique: PSP is organized and run by Palestinian farmers and goes beyond the efforts of isolated villages like Bil'in as it is building a mass movement of Palestinians; PSP crosses political party lines.
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. Wolf organized the village against dispossession, settler violence and non-violent resistance to the 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 all can learn, can work, and from which we can all be inspired.
