Born in 1946 in Minnesota, Jeff Halper emigrated to Israel in 1973. Since then he has been a tireless advocate for justice and civil rights for all Israelis and Palestinians. He spent ten years as a community worker in Jerusalem aiding low-income Mizrahi families. He co-founded ICAHD in 1997 to resist Israel's strategy of house demolitions in the occupied territories. He is the author of three books: Between Redemption and Revival: The Jewish Yishuv in Jerusalem in the Nineteenth Century; An Israeli in Palestine: Resisting Possession, Redeeming Israel; and Obstacles to Peace: A Reframing of the Palestinian–Israeli Conflict. Jeff is an engaging and knowledgeable speaker.
