    O you who believe, be upright for God, and be bearers of witness with justice! Quran, 5:8

    Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed.
    Isaiah 1:17

    Tzedek, tzedek tirdof / Justice, justice thou shalt pursue. Deuteronomy 16:20


    At Interfaith Communities United for Justice and Peace, we understand that grief, sorrow, and words are not enough to make change. We are called to work towards dialogue and solutions that affirm the primary calling of our organization - Religious Communities MUST Stop Blessing War and Violence.

    Long before the tragic events of October 7th of last year, ICUJP has been shining a light on the Israel/Palestine conflict, and we are asking you to join us at LOVE FOR PALESTINE, a working event that endeavors to provide a compassionate community space for participants to channel their emotions re: the war in Israel/Palestine into constructive action and advocacy.

    You will be able to send messages and call the offices of elected officials, contribute to humanitarian organizations, and be involved in actions against businesses profiting from war.

    In the words of ICUJP Convener, the late Rev. George Regas, speaking about a conflict long ago but still resonant today:

    The sin at the heart of this war against Iraq is your belief that an American life is of more value than an Iraqi life. That an American child is more precious than an Iraqi baby. God loathes war.

    Justice and Peace are WORK, and ICUJP has been doing that work with our partners for over 22 years, many of them focusing on conflicts in the Middle East and their ramifications for us in this country.

    Please join us at the Islamic Center of Southern California on Sunday, April 21st, 2:30 - 4:30 pm.
