What does home mean to you?

Everyone needs a home — where families are safe and secure, where their basic needs are met, where they can come and go freely, and where they can imagine a future.

But that is not the reality for Palestinians — or even for some Israelis.

Living under Israeli occupation, Palestinians regularly experience demolition of their homes, confiscation of their land, restrictions to their movement because of checkpoints, walls, and permit systems.  They live with severe water shortages. Many of those who resist — even nonviolently — face military detention and imprisonment.

Many Israeli Jews live with ongoing fear and trauma as a result of centuries of persecution. They too long for safety and security.
