Jewish Resistance at Aipac: Central Jersey

  • Reformed Church of Highland Park 19 South 2nd Avenue Highland Park, NJ, 08904 United States (map)

"Donald Trump’s first year as president of the United States is also the 50th year of Israel’s occupation of the Palestinian territories. The Israeli government stands poised to make the occupation a permanent reality, and Trump has given every indication that his administration will support them.

The American Jewish Establishment has for the most part remained silent in the face of Trump’s proposed policies that would not only imperil democracy but encourage violence. It has failed to register concern as anti-Semites, bigots, and misogynists became emboldened by Trump’s rise. And as we have long known, its defense of a status quo of endless occupation is a true moral disaster. 

The millions of us who took to the streets the day after the inauguration weren’t just marching against Trump -- we were declaring our refusal to be complicit with the violence that his administration represents. Make no mistake -- the American Jewish establishment's silence is complicity. And we won’t play any part.

Join IfNotNow for our Central Jersey Community Action Meeting to learn more about our upcoming action at AIPAC’s policy conference in March. We will talk about IfNotNow's strategy for the next three months, our plans for the action and how we’re mobilizing our community for our largest action of the #JewishResistance.
