for our work to continue.

We need your support.

With very limited resources, UMKR has made a major impact in the United Methodist Church.

Groundbreaking divestment and boycott actions by the UMC would never have happened without UMKR's advocacy AND the extraordinary partners and allies who have worked with us and supported our efforts.

 If we are to continue advocating for Palestinian rights throughout our international denomination, we need your support.

We depend on those who believe in our work to ensure it will continue.

UMKR is an independent grassroots movement in our church that has

grown remarkably since it began in 2010, but that would never have

happened without supporters like you. Please take a moment to

Download and use our boycott resources. You could:

•    Arrange for our short boycott PowerPoint to be shown at your church, during a Sunday service or a meeting

•    Use our insert/flyer in Sunday bulletins at your church or ask your pastor about using it

•    Distribute information about the boycott, such as the Why Boycott the Settlements Brochure, in your church and call a meeting to discuss how members can support and grow the boycott.


United Methodists and allies are contacting U.S. government leaders

throughout the year with timely, coordinated messages, and supporting

vital Congressional briefings that are well attended by key

congressional staffers. You can join these united actions when

yousubscribe to our news & action.


Learn more about the occupation and why we should take action

to help end it:

• See the Kairos Palestine document, Palestinian Christians' statement of faith and hope and call to action.
• Check out our series of
monthly webinars that began May 2020, with diverse speakers from the US, Palestine and beyond.

• Watch engrossing and informative video clips from the class "Steadfast Hope."

Help others you know to learn in your congregation or organization:

•    Encourage your church group to read and discuss the Kairos Palestine Document, using one of the excellent study guides.

•     Another great resource for study and discussion is the booklet

"Is Israel an Apartheid State?" - a groundbreaking report that provides an excellent overview of the Israeli occupation.

•    See more educational resources at our Education home page.

•    Read and download to share with others the Divestment Q & A and the Boycott Q & A

•   A good way to learn and help others to learn is to show a film about Israel/Palestine - there are some great selections
in this catalog (see it in black and white also).  Follow up your presentation with a discussion.
Contact UMKR about bringing a knowledgeable and experienced speaker to your church or group.
•   For a really special evening, maybe you would like to serve a
Middle Eastern meal before the main event.  Get more ideas for event planning here.


There is nothing like seeing it for yourself, to understand what is really

happening in the Holy Land and the urgent need to answer the call from

our fellow Christians there. Be sure to spend some quality time with the

"living stones" - the people of the land. Combine your fact-finding visit with

a tour of the ancient biblical sites and you will experience the trip of a lifetime.

When you come home, be sure to share with others what you learned about

current facts on the ground in Israel/Palestine, and contact us for ways you can work for a just peace for all the people of this remarkable land. Find recommended tour organizers in our Tourism section.


Don't be shy about sharing what you have learned about Israel/Palestine!

Talk with friends, family, members of your church and your community.

That is the way our church and our societies wherever we may live will begin

to understand the need for change and support it. You don't have to be an

expert or have all the answers. Refer them to useful websites for more answers

and contact us whenever you need us:
