On Sunday, April 15, hundreds of Jewish students, young Jews and Palestinians rallied outside of Birthright’s gala in Manhattan, where Sheldon Adelson was given the ‘Guardian of the Jewish Future’ award. We were there to stand in solidarity with Palestinians marching in Gaza for their right to return, and we told Birthright and Sheldon Adelson- we are the Jewish future, and it will be founded upon solidarity and liberation! We Return the Birthright- because it’s unjust that we get a free Birthright trip, while Palestinian refugees can’t return to their homes. Birthright co-founder Michael Steinhardt gave us the middle finger, as he exited his limousine.
