Jews for Israeli–Palestinian Peace (Swedish: Judar för israelisk-palestinsk fred), abbreviated as JIPF, is a group founded by Swedish Jews in 1982 in Stockholm, Sweden, after the Israeli invasion of Lebanon.

JIPF states that they want to work for a "fair and lasting peace" in the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians, based on national self-determination and independence for the both peoples.[1] Its political programme include demands for a creation of a Palestinian state, Israel's withdrawal from all territories occupied in 1967, the dismantlement of Israeli settlements and that the Palestinian refugee question must be based on the principle of the right of return or economic compensation.[1]

Dror Feiler is the chairman of the organization. Other members includes Izzy Young, the journalist Annika Thor and the pediatrician Henry Ascher.
