Dear Sisters and Brothers, 
Greetings from Bethlehem!
Kairos Palestine is pleased to announce  Easter Alert 2019, available on our website!

This year the Easter Alert aims to shed light and raise awareness about the deteriorating situation –not only during Easter time –to show the urgency of the situation in Palestine, especially Jerusalem and to encourage congregations, lay-persons and clergy all around the world to remember this season that marks the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. 
Let us all together spread the message of Palestinian Christians around the world!
~ Kairos Palestine
Easter Blessings! Thank you for accompanying us in this journey to the cross. The purpose of the annual Kairos alert is to shed light on the reality on the ground and provide a Christian commentary and analysis to this reality. Indeed, you have heard from voices on the ground and international activists on what it means to live as Palestinians and Palestinian Christians under systemic injustice and discrimination. Whether we talk about political pressure, collective punishment, restriction of movement, or the denial of entry to holy sites, it all points to the severity of the situation... Read More

Kairos Palestine urges you to...

please do the following:

  1. Distribute and study these theological reflections in your places of worship each Sunday to inform and educate your community about the suffering of your Palestinian family living under Israeli occupation.
  2. Share the alert with congregations, regions, conferences, presbyteries and dioceses across your country.
  3. Respond to the Call...Send letters of solidarity and support for justice in Palestine/Israel to the Israeli embassies in your own country
  4. “Come and see.” We will fulfill our role to make it known to you the truth of our reality, receiving you as pilgrims— sisters and brothers—coming to us to pray, carrying a message of peace, love and reconciliation. Thus, you will know the facts and the people of this land, Palestinians and Israelis alike. (Kairos 6.2)
  5. Take tangible actions. Support Palestinian rights by supporting Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel until it complies with International Law and UN resolutions. Support the right of persons, corporations, states and nations to boycott Israel as an expression of their freedom of speech.
  6. Inform your Palestinian brothers and sisters about the ways you have been involved with the Easter Alert by writing us at this email address: Contact us for any other reason, too. Our strength and courage are emboldened by our contacts with you.
