Resources on Israel’s Changing Policies on the West Bank

Israel is considering implementing an application of sovereignty or annexation over parts of the West Bank that could take place as early as July 1. JCPA, in coordination, with the Israel Action Network, has put together a task force to assist JCRC directors and chairs in responding to this concern locally. JCPA has compiled articles, webinars, and studies on the issue to assist you. For information on study materials from various viewpoints or how to vet the issue locally, contact JCPAinfo@thejcpa.org.
