To work for peace and justice for Israelis and Palestinians. As the Jewish New Year, 5770, comes upon us, we invite you, Jewish or not, to participate in the age-old ritual of tshuvah, or turning, toward a new hope and a new world. Please share your hopes and commitments that will bring an end to injustice anywhere so there can be justice everywhere. From all of us at JVP, Shanah Tovah. Have a sweet and good year!

I am Russian-born Israeli. I was brainwashed during many years by the smart Israeli propaganda machine. I believed that Israel is just fighting terror committed by the “evil people of Palestinians.” Still being brainwashed, I served in the Israeli Occupation Forces during the Gaza War. But now my eyes are open: during the last half a year I saw the injustices made to Palestinians by the Israeli establishment in East Jerusalem and elsewhere. And now I promise to fight the present-day Israeli dictatorship through civil disobedience, (even under attacks I subjected to in Israel: police, blackmails, violations of my freedom of speech, etc.) and incite the flame of civil disobedience in other people.
