We believe that anti-Israel propaganda should and must be confronted regardless of where it occurs because ignoring the lies and misinformation contributes to their proliferation, and because ignoring the lies sets a poor example for our children. We also believe that the American Jewish community needs to establish a feeling of collective responsibility for its future, and that a grassroots approach to the anti-Israel landscape that confronts us is the best way to achieve that goal.
And we have helped to do just that.
In a short time, we have held an educational symposium on BDS at George Washington University, hosted a webinar on Black-Jewish relations, hosted a workshop on Mizrahi Jews with Hen Mazzig at the National Museum of Jewish Military History, and given a presentation at the annual conference of the Association for the Study of the Middle East and Africa. In that time, we have published I is for Israel - a book for children - and "The Myth of Israeli Apartheid" - an academic special report published by Segal Press, more than ten opinion pieces in The Algemeiner , the Philadelphia Jewish Voice , and in our Times of Israel blog and have been featured on WTOP news , ABC news , in the Washington Jewish Week , and in Bethesda Magazine.
We have created Regional Response Teams across the country, which have worked successfully to cancel three hateful antisemitic events, protest an antisemitic film, and confront antisemitic speakers including Linda Sarsour, Marc Lamont Hill, Roger Waters, and Phyllis Bennis.
We are ready and willing to continue our efforts, but we cannot do it without your support. Will you help us to continue this important work?
