Jewish Grass-Roots Network Merges with National Organization to Support Middle East Peace

Lodestar provided the lead grant to facilitate a merger between Brit Tzedek v’Shalom (the Jewish Alliance for Justice and Peace), a grass-roots network of U.S. supporters of Middle East peace, and J Street Education Fund, a national nonprofit devoted to promoting a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The integration of Brit Tzedek into J Street provided J Street with a national network of locally-based chapters supporting a peaceful resolution of the Middle East conflict, increasing the opportunity for J Street to be more strategic and effective through field operations to facilitate support for peace.
