Jewish Opposition to Israel

Hello friends of Jewish Voice for Peace-Seattle,

Chag Sameach! Thank you to those of you who were able to join us for our Passover Seder last weekend — it was incredibly energizing to have so many people come together to honor tradition while also engaging politically for justice and freedom. And to all of you, we hope your Passover is meaningful and full of so much liberation!
We want to share with you a few things we’ve got going on these days. If you’re interested in getting more involved in JVP-Seattle’s work, here are some ways in:
  • There is a possible Ritual Working Group in the works. This group will both plan events observing Jewish rituals through a lens that centers Palestinian liberation and our politics of freedom and dignity for all people, as well as bring Jewish-inspired ritual into our political actions. [To learn more, contact Mollie (molliewolf@gmail.com).]
  • The JVP-Seattle Collective serves as a steering committee for the chapter’s events and campaigns.[Contact Wendy (wsomerson@gmail.com) if you’re interested in taking leadership in our local chapter.]
  • We are supporting the grassroots fundraising and community building efforts of one of our favorite environmental justice groups, Got Green, in their annual Green-A-Thon on June 4th! [To join our team (Jewish Voice for Green!), contact Shelby (shelbyhandler@gmail.com).]

Please let us know if you’d like to plug in in any of these ways (or others, if there’s something else you’re dreaming up!) and join us. We would love to work with you!

Onward,
Mollie (for the JVP-Seattle Collective)
