Ru's IfNotNow Fundraising Page

Goal thermometer

For the past year, I’ve been organizing with IfNotNow - an emergent millennial movement of young American Jews to end our community’s support for the occupation. IfNotNow is grounded in the belief that the liberation of Jews is bound up with other oppressed groups, both in this country and in Israel/Palestine. Particularly living under Trump’s presidency, the connection between an unquestioning support for Israel (without a genuine regard for the real interests of Jews) and white supremacist values has become crystal clear to the public.

Like so many others in this moment, I am afraid for myself and for my friends, family and neighbors, and the planet. IfNotNow has given me a place to join together with young Jews in resistance to the world falling apart around us, in the name of justice and truly intersectional liberation.

Over the next few months, we will continue to build the #JewishResistance by mobilizing locally and across the nation. We want to train hundreds more people as members of IfNotNow, bring thousands more into the streets, and make the connection in our community between the moral bankruptcy of our institutions and the pro-Israel-at-any-cost politics that reigns in the American Jewish establishment.

However, we can’t make any of this happen without the support of our community. Now is the time of Hanukkah and gift giving. I have pledged to raise $1300 to support this work, and I have already committed $50 myself. I am asking friends and family to consider contributing what they can as well. Can you make a gift this season?
