Yachad (Hebrew: יחד‎, "together") is a non-governmental organization based in the United Kingdom.[1] It describes itself as "pro-Israel, pro-peace".[2][3]

Yachad claims to believe that "Israel's best hope for safety and security lies in a comprehensive peace with its neighbors. That means a two-state solution: Israel and Palestine." According to Yachad, "time is running out and the two-state solution is in peril". Facing this situation, "Now is the moment for diaspora Jews to play their part and do all they can in the search for peace."

Yachad has a wide ranging programme of activities through campaigns that claim to aim to build support for those in Israel working for peace and democracy. Yachad organizes day trips to East Jerusalem and the southern West Bank. They also work with British Jews — youth and adults - to promote their beliefs.
