Olive Picking: Videos

The JAI Olive Picking Program is organized each fall in coordination with the Alternative Tourism Group (ATG). The olive picking season is short and often Palestinians are harassed or prevented from picking their olives by Israeli settlers or military forces. To prevent this, we invite internationals to come and pick olives with Palestinian farmers.

The program lasts for a week and includes cultural evenings, lectures and presentations, as well as opportunities to visit religious sites. In 2006 dozens of eager olive pickers joined the program from Asia, Europe, and the United States
