Conversations with Israel and Palestine

We stand for Israel and Palestine states

Partners for Progressive Israel stands for a durable and just peace between Israel and all its neighbors, especially the Palestinian people, based on a negotiated two-state solution. PPI believes that Israel’s ongoing occupation and settlement effort undermine the country’s national interests, sully the image of Zionism, and inevitably lead to the violation of the human rights of those under occupation.


Israel Symposium, June 14-21, 2018

The Israel Symposium was the creation of our founder, Harold Shapiro, who wanted all those committed to a just Israel to experience meeting key Israeli and Palestinian political figures as well as leaders of NGOs dedicated to a peace and human rights.  The 2018 trip will honor Harold for his vision for peace in the region and a humane Israel.
