Jewish Voice for Peace

PREVIEW THE AD AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS EMAIL

Dear Supporter,

Sheldon Adelson and the Republican Jewish Coalition are placing vicious hate ads in Jewish papers in key swing-states this week. Their target? Peace advocate Rabbi Lynn Gottlieb, one of the first women rabbis in the United States, and a member of the Jewish Voice for Peace Rabbinic Council.
 
Apparently, rabbis like Lynn who support peace, diplomacy, and equality are a threat to their far-right vision of endless war and occupation. But we’re not going to stay silent — we’re fighting back with ads of our own. 
 
Will you join me and sign on to our ad now?

Weeks ago, Bill Kristol and his Emergency Committee for Israel, and the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC), went after Rabbi Lynn and other members of the Jewish Voice for Peace Rabbinic Council—a group I am proud to co-chair — because they joined Rabbis for Obama.  But they didn’t stop with attacks on JVP rabbis — now the RJC is going after others like the Rabbis for Obama co-chair who defended Lynn from their attacks.

That means no one is safe unless we all join together.
 
Please join me and hundreds of other Jewish leaders in supporting this counter-ad we intend to run in Jewish newspapers:

We want to be able to say that at least 10,000 people support our message— NO to bullying. NO to demonization of peace-makers.  And YES to peace, equality and justice.

I’m signing on because I strive to do all of the things Rabbi Lynn is being attacked for doing – to work for peace every day and to make clear my opposition to war on Iran. I refuse to let right-wing extremist pundits and billionaires tell me how to express my values, and I hope you feel the same.

Please add your name now.

Thanks for all you do,

 

Rabbi Brant Rosen, Rabbinic Council Co-Chair
