Professor Jeff Halper (59) is the Coordinator of the Israeli Committee Against
House Demolitions (ICAHD) and a Professor of Anthropology. He has lived in Israel
since 1973, having emigrated from the US. Besides his years of involvement with the
Israeli peace movement, Jeff has been active on issues of social justice within Israel.

Jeff has taught at Haifa and Ben Gurion Universities in Israel. He is the author of the book Between Redemption and Revival: the Jewish Yishuv in Jerusalem in the
Nineteenth Century (Westview, 1991). His forthcoming book, An Israeli in Palestine:
Reframing the Israel-Palestine Conflict, will be published by Pluto Press. Jeff defines himself as an “engaged anthropologist.” As the Coordinator of ICAHD, Jeff has
forged a new mode of Israeli peace activity based on non-violent direct action and
civil disobedience to the Israeli Occupation authorities, forging a relationship of trust, solidarity and close cooperation with Palestinian organizations. He serves on the Steering Committee of the UN Conference on the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people.
