I Pledge to #ReturnTheBirthright

Since 1999, the Birthright Israel program has sent over 500,000 Jewish young adults on a free ten-day trip to Israel, in the name of strengthening Jewish identity and connection to the Jewish state.

But while all Jews worldwide are handed this free trip, and, furthermore, automatic citizenship if they choose to immigrate to Israel, Palestinians are barred from returning to the homes and villages where their ancestors lived for centuries.

As young Jews in Jewish Voice for Peace, we #ReturnTheBirthright and call on other young Jews to do the same. We choose a Judaism that is grounded in values of solidarity and liberation, not occupation and apartheid.



WE WELCOME 5779

This year, you have many offerings to choose from: live streamed high holiday services, a list of local JVP member-led services, JVP holiday cards, ritual guides, and ritual resources.

ORDER JVP HOLIDAY CARDS

This Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, let us bend ladders into bridges. Buy a pack of these beautiful High Holiday cards – designed by JVP Artist, Mara Gerson – and send them to your friends, family, and colleagues.

Senators: Investigate Israeli Violence!

No one should be killed for taking part in a peaceful protest. It’s up to us to call on progressive Senators to investigate Israel’s massacre in Gaza that killed over 100 Palestinians wounded 12,000 others.
