Israel Peace Alternatives
Israel Peace Alternatives (IPA) consists of members of Congregation Bet Haverim dedicated to the preservation and strengthening of a democratic Jewish Israel through the achievement of a negotiated settlement of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and adherence to the principles of freedom, justice, and equality for all Israeli citizens as articulated in the declaration of independence of the State of Israel.
We are impelled by the obligation to pursue justice and peace, placed upon us by our sacred writings as well as the best Jewish secular traditions of the past three centuries. Our programs, which are open to all congregational members and the public, are designed to advance these objectives through information, education, discussion and advocacy.

All programs are free and open to the public.
