Who we are?
The Palestinian and Jewish Unity (PAJU) is a human rights organization that explicitly recognizes the right of the Palestinian people to national existence and to live in security. We condemn all violations of human rights. PAJU was co-founded in Montreal by Bruce Katz, a Jewish Canadian and Rezeq Faraj, a Palestinian Canadian who have been friends for more than 25 years. Our group is comprised of Jews, Palestinians and other Canadians of good conscience who work together to promote peace in the Middle East and to educate the public on the Palestinian question.

For more than twenty years, we have organized weekly vigils in solidarity with Palestine and meet people where they are to tell them about it. The vigils are held in front of schools and universities, metro stations, shops and during street and neighborhood festivities… So far, more than 500,000 flyers have been distributed to passers-by!
To support us, you can become a member, participate in the vigils, make a donation or all of these options at the same time. We look forward to working with you!
