Jewish Peace Fellowship

Description: Jewish Peace Fellowship is a Jewish voice in the peace community and a peace voice in the Jewish community. JPF continues to support Jewish resistance--individual and communal-- to the arms race in the United States and Israel and throughout the world. We actively oppose capital punishment, conscription, the Israeli occupation, and U.S. armed interventions including the former Yugoslavia (1999). We support individuals who serve prison time for civil disobedience against Selective Service registration or in antinuclear actions. We monitor changes in Selective Service law in order to alert our membership and friends by our participation in National Interreligious Service Board for Conscientious Objectors (NISBCO) and with other anti-draft organizations. As one of the many interfaith religious peace fellowships affiliated with the national religious pacifist organization, the Fellowship of Reconciliation, we work in interfaith coalition with others. We have recently affiliated directly with the International Fellowship of Reconciliation in order to expand our membership to the international Jewish community. We support and link local group initiatives anywhere with our archive on Jewish peace sources and Jewish draft counseling.
