The new address for Middle East peace and security
Welcome to J Street Minnesota.
We come together as Minnesota Jews promoting a safe, secure and democratic Israel as a homeland for the Jewish people, alongside a geographically and economically viable State of Palestine as a homeland for the Palestinian people. We seek to demonstrate that the pro-Israel, pro-peace view is the position of large numbers of Jews in Minnesota. We work to exercise our civic duty as Americans, communicating with our own government about American diplomatic policy that we believe is most helpful to Israel. As lovers of Israel, we believe we can do no less.

A New Voice for Israel: A Conversation with Jeremy Ben-Ami
Tuesday, November 8th at 7:30pm
at the home of a J Street Supporter
We'll send you address information after you sign up.
Join us in Minneapolis as J Street President Jeremy Ben-Ami lays out a new direction for both American policy and a new rulebook for conducting the conversation on Israel in the American Jewish community.
Emotions run high when it comes to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the role of the United States in helping to resolve it. Jeremy Ben-Ami’s new book seeks to dispel some of the common myths about the national politics and Jewish communal dynamics around Israel. These include the notion that being pro-Israel and pro-Palestinian are mutually exclusive; that leaders of established Jewish organizations speak for all American Jews on Israel; and that talking peace demonstrates weakness.

Beginning 2010, the grassroots supporters of Brit Tzedek v'Shalom (The Jewish Alliance for Justice and Peace) became part of J Street.
With our combined forces, we intend to provide a Minnesota home for supporters of Israel to promote an end to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through a negotiated two-state solution.
We look forward to providing opportunities for all of our local supporters to take action and advance the mission of J Street through locally-based organizing, education, advocacy efforts, targeted communications and online action. We believe this new integrated strategy - messaging, lobbying, and grassroots activism - will allow us to show our elected representatives the depth of the political support for strong American leadership to help a secure, democratic Israel live side-by-side with an independent, viable Palestinian state.
We hope you will join us in promoting J Street's message of hope and action. More than ever, we now have an opportunity to make a real difference in promoting peace and a two-state solution, and your help is key to making that happen.
If you'd like to work with us, we welcome your your interest and your help.
