From Jewish Voices for Peace:

This Passover is like no other Passover in our lives.

After six months of the Israeli government’s genocide in Gaza, funded and armed by the U.S., we call on Jewish people of conscience to take to the streets. 

On Tuesday Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, the highest ranking Jewish elected official in the U.S., led the vote to send over $14 billion more to the Israeli military. Meanwhile, thousands of us gathered on his doorstep in prayer and song for a “Seder in the streets.” More than 250 individuals were arrested by the NYPD.

Earlier this week, Palestinians uncovered a second mass grave in Gaza, at the Nasser Hospital in Khan Younis. More than 300 bodies were buried there, many with their hands and feet tied, killed and discarded by the Israeli military.  – Jewish Voices for Peace
