On April 5th, hundreds of young Jews will converge on Birthright’s headquarters to give one last to chance to choose, #UsOrTheDonors

For the past month, Jewish college students all over the country have been making a simple demand of Birthright — confront the crisis of the Occupation.


To no one’s surprise, Birthright has met these demands with silence. As the silence grows, college students are preparing to take our demand straight to the source. On April 5th, hundreds of young Jews will converge at Birthright’s headquarters in New York City and give them one last chance to choose, #UsOrTheDonors.


A free trip that gags us from mentioning the occupation is not a gift - it’s a bribe that Jewish youth are no longer willing to take.


We’re hoping to make April 5th a historic day for the Jewish future and we need your support to make it happen. For too long Birthright has hidden the Occupation from our generation and attempted to define our Jewish identity as one that supports Israel no matter what. On April 5th, Jewish college students are rejecting Birthright’s offer and paving the way for a liberated Jewish future that refuses to support the Occupation.


Students are flying in from all corners of the U.S. and will need support with airfare and housing. They’ll need supplies for beautiful artwork to visualize their frustration, and food to sustain them as they take their demand to Birthright headquarters.


180 dollars will pay for a college student’s airfare to and from New York. 36 dollars will cover hostel costs. 18 dollars will cover meals for the weekend.


Will you contribute to supporting these brave young Jews demanding Birthright confront the crisis?


April 5th is going to be a defining moment for our community, and we’re so appreciative to have you on our side.


Please support the Jewish college students taking on Birthright today.
