The Holy Land Trust is neither a political nor a religious organization; we aspire to learn from the spiritual teachings and values of all faiths and traditions that bring unity to the human family and closeness to the Creator of all things, practicing and promoting love, truth and goodness, between all people, and acting always with empathy and compassion.
Nonviolence is at the heart of Holy Land Trust's work and is incorporated into everything we do and strive for. We seek to live out nonviolence as a core spiritual teaching, not only as a pragmatic approach to dealing with conflict.
In order to achieve a future that seems impossible to so many, leaders first need to engage in new levels of thinking that allows for them to fully see the possibility of peace in the Holy Land and work towards that vision.
We believe one of the biggest challenges preventing a viable peace process is the lack of mutual trust and respect between the different groups, especially between Palestinians and Israelis.
