The Bishop’s Committee for Israel/Palestine is a special committee of the Episcopal Diocese of Olympia. We are committed to a future in which everyone in Israel and Palestine enjoys security, justice, and equal rights. We work toward this future by raising awareness, advocating for change, and with prayer. We partner in this effort with people and groups of all faiths.
This website, bishopscommittee.org, is intended to be a platform for us to provide information and make announcements to our community. Over time we hope to create a library of background information on Israel and Palestine, a selection of current events, and links to other organizations working for peace and justice in Israel and Palestine.
With the advent of the new year, we are expanding our coverage beyond Israel/Palestine proper, to include religious discrimination and the refugee crisis affecting the Middle East.
Yours in peace,
— The Bishop’s Committee
