Rochester Witness for Palestine, Inc. grew from the experiences of individuals, who traveled to the Middle East, separately or together. They talked with many different groups or individuals, each of which shared a perspective about what it's like to live in Israel, the West Bank, Gaza, Lebanon, or Jordan.

They walked through Hebron.
