Accompaniment in Palestine and Israel

Become a Facebook friend of the Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel (EAPPI) and learn about this important ministry.

From the EAPPI Web page comes the following description:

The Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel (EAPPI) brings internationals to the West Bank to experience life under occupation. Ecumenical Accompaniers (EAs) provide protective presence to vulnerable communities, monitor and report human rights abuses and support Palestinians and Israelis working together for peace. When they return home, EAs campaign for a just and peaceful resolution to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict through an end to the occupation, respect for international law and implementation of UN resolutions.

The EAPPI also provides factsheets on the situation in the West Bank.

The Rev. Clark Scalera, a Presbyterian minister, has just finished service as a EA in Hebron.

Breaking Down the Walls, the report adopted by the 219th General Assembly (2010) of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), calls Presbyterians to participate in the EAPPI.
