A Voice for Justice and Peace in Israel/Palestine

Young Jews, Zionism and the new Jewish activism

Posted by rabbibrian on February 10, 2011

In November last year, several young Jews disrupted the speech by Prime Minister Netanyahu at the General Assembly of the Jewish Federations of North America.  Their courageous action focused attention on a generation of young Jews who think very differently about Zionism, Israel and their Jewish identity.

I am delighted that on Thursday next week, Taanit Tzedek  fast day,  will be hosting a conference call at 12 noon with young Jewish activists, including two who participated in the action in November.  All the details are below.  It should be an amazing call and I hope you can join.  Also please share with others, especially with young people you think may be interested.   For more information about Young, Jewish and Proud and the action last year click here.

We would appreciate it if you could share it with friends and others who may be interested.
