A Prayerful Study of Boycott, Divestment & Sanctions

The 222nd General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) (2016) called upon the denomination and its membership to engage in a prayerful study of the Palestinian civil society call for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS). Since its inception in 2005, the call for BDS has become a focal point in the conversation and advocacy efforts relating to the conflict in Israel-Palestine. The conflict in Israel-Palestine, and how we as Presbyterians should respond, has caused deep divisions within our denomination. It is our prayer that this resource will help create constructive conversation across the divide and encourage respect and close consideration of the pleas of the Palestinians who crafted the call.
