As people around the world gather together this holiday season, families across the Palestinian Territories-- from Bethlehem to Gaza City-- remain separated due to significant discrimination. Through our Gaza Exodus initiative, led by Philos Fellow Khalil Sayegh, The Philos Project aims to raise $20,000 for four Gazan Christian families. The money will cover transportation, legal status fees, and temporary living expenses to support the relocation of these families from Gaza to the West Bank.
Antisemitism is rising inside and outside the Middle East, and this year The Philos Project is taking a stand. Our Christianity demands that we confront hatred of every kind, but especially hatred of the very people who brought our faith to the world.
Human dignity, truth, freedom, justice — these are the Hebraic values that lie at the heart of our work. Join us this year as we promote those values on behalf of the Jewish people and all the peoples of the world.
