About AmeinuAmeinu, Hebrew for “Our People,” is a national, multi-generational community of progressive Jews in North America. Recognizing the unbreakable bond between the Jewish people and Israel, as well as the commitment to make our own society better, we mobilize those Jews who seek opportunities to foster social and economic justice both in Israel and in North America. As Zionists, we understand that a secure peace between Israel and its neighbors is essential to the survival of a democratic Jewish state. With this in mind, we build support within the North American Jewish community for a negotiated two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.Learn More

The Two State Solution for Israel and the Palestinians — A demographic necessity that ensures Israel’s long term security
The demographic reality on the ground demonstrates that the only way Israel can remain a Jewish, democratic state is if the Palestinians have a state next to Israel. The S. Daniel Abraham Center for Middle East Peace has mounted an advertisement campaign to encourage leaders in the Middle East to reach a just and comprehensive peace that will bring an end to the Arab-Israeli conflict.

African Exodus: The Story and the Film Since 2005, sixty thousand non-Jewish Africans, primarily from Sudan and Eritrea, have fled the wars and dictatorships of their home countries and made their way through Egypt and the Sinai desert into Israel, the Jewish homeland. These Africans, mostly refugees and asylum seekers, have risked their lives in the hope of finding a safe haven until they can return home.

We have told this story for 200 generations and it is our most basic connection to our dual heritage of social justice and to Zionism. For 200 …
