Today, raising our collective voice for what is right and what is responsible is more important than ever. #OurFutureIsrael is designed to demonstrate the millennial voice against annexation with the world, including key media figures, leaders, and other decision-makers. Join us and go on the record:
"Starting July 1, the new Knesset government intends to begin the process of applying sovereignty (annexation) over large portions of the West Bank. As millennials stepping into mantles of leadership now and for decades to come, we are compelled to raise our voice at this time of great uncertainty in global Jewish affairs and amidst the coronavirus pandemic.
Unilateral annexation threatens the security of Israelis, bipartisan US-Israel relations, and the present and future ties that bind young Diaspora Jews and Israel. It undermines Israeli democracy and an eventual agreement with the Palestinians by way of a viable, two-state solution. As such, our Zionism compels us to oppose annexation. It motivates us to educate our peers and communities about the dangers of such a move. And it requires us to go on record demonstrating our collective perspective against it.
In moments like these, when extreme voices seek to dominate the conversation, we return to our values and each other. #OurFutureIsrael envisions and works towards the strengthening of a Jewish and democratic Israel, one whose borders are defensible and secure for generations to come. #OurFutureIsrael embodies Zionism, binding Jews worldwide with the one Jewish State. Far from giving up, we choose to recommit to our values and call for more responsible leadership from decision-makers in Washington, the Jewish community, and in the region."
