Brit Shalom

   A Jewish organization based in mandatory Palestine and devoted to the promotion of a working arrangement between Zionism and Arab nationalism. The main goal was to promote a bi-national state in Palestine rather than a Jewish state. It was a small and loosely shaped organization composed primarily of Jewish intellectuals and other prominent Jewish figures and reached its peak in the 1920s and 1930s. In many respects, it was more of a debating society and study group than an active political organization. Martin Buber and Judith Magnes were among its members.
