World Week for Peace in Palestine and Israel is a time for people of faith around the world to join together in worship, prayer, education, advocacy, and action in support of an end to the occupation of Palestine and a just peace for all in Palestine and Israel. The World Council of Churches continues to pray for the search for true peace, founded on justice and an end to occupation, to really begin. “We yearn for a just peace in the Holy Land for all the people of the region―Jews, Muslims and Christians, Israelis and Palestinians, in equality and mutual respect―so that all may sit under their own vine and under their own fig tree, and no one will make them afraid"
