Dear Friend of Brit Tzedek,

The work of Brit Tzedek has never been more important than right now, during the current crisis in the Middle East. Together, we are presenting a principled alternative to what it means to be pro-Israel and raising a voice of conscience and purpose in the American Jewish community.

Now, we need your help to bring our message for substantive and sustained US and international diplomacy to Washington and to our communities. Please make a donation today.

We have sent thousands of messages to the White House and Congress urging the US, together with the international community, to intervene immediately in order to achieve a ceasefire and the release of Israeli soldiers in the ongoing Mideast crisis.

And through organized delegations at Israel solidarity rallies, we have brought our message to the Jewish community and generated media attention as a result. 

Brit Tzedek Voice Heard Across Country

Executive Director Diane Balser in the New York Jewish Week:

"We believe the policies of the Israeli government are not in the interests of the Israeli people... We have to say that force is not the answer." ("The Liberal Dilemma," July 27, 2006)

Brit Tzedek's Philadelphia chapter covered in the Jewish Exponent:

"People representing the organization Brit Tzedek v'Shalom were interspersed throughout the crowd, carrying banners that read 'Pro-Israel, Pro-Peace' and 'Cease-Fire for All Sides.'" ("Stand Strong -- and They Did!," July 27th, 2006)

Boston chapter activist and board member Beth Wasserman in the Boston Globe:

"This conflict will never be settled by use of force. For Israel to achieve security and terrorism to end, there needs to be a brokered, lasting cease-fire." ("Israel Gets Some Local Backing," July 19, 2006)

DC chapter and Rabbinic Cabinet member Rabbi Binyamin Biber in the Washington Jewish Week:

"To take actions that cause the loss of civilian life and destroy civil society and undermine the new Lebanese government may actually be much more detrimental to Israel's long-term interests," ("Lonely voices: A few dissenting Jews question Israel's actions," July 26, 2006)

Now is the time to reach deep into your pockets to help us continue to bring Brit Tzedek's voice to the American Jewish community and to Washington.

Invest in a peaceful future by supporting us today.
