The Reform movement's connections to anti-Israeli sources and BLM

The reason why the movement for Reform Judaism shouldn't get funding, as explained in this article, is because of their far-left connections:
When the current government was formed this past summer, among the new ministerial departments created was one named “Hayahadut Hamit-hadeshet” (which loosely translates as “renewable Judaism"), within the framework of the Diaspora Affairs Ministry, and this new department is now being used to funnel a massive budget of no less than NIS 40 million to Reform and Conservative groups, to fund their various projects..."

But Israel should not fund the Reform Movement. Here is why:

1. Reform rabbinical and cantorial students signed a letter accusing Israelis of being racists, providing fuel for BDS. On November 3, 2021 bloger Elder of Zion reported "Anti-Zionist Jews are loving an article by Marc Tracy that will be published in this coming Sunday's New York Times magazine, Inside the Unraveling of American Zionism. Tracy interviews some of the Jewish rabbinical and cantorial students who signed a letter in May that attacked Israel. The letter compared Israel's treatment of Palestinians to American racism..." (For the truth click here.)

2. The Reform Movement enthusiastically embraces Black Lives Matter. BLM calls for "dismantling of the Zionist project, dismantling of the settler-colonialist project". This video shows Black Lives Matter co-founder calling for Israel's destruction.

On February 17, 2021 Samanta Mandeles reported in Legal Insurrection "Professor Marc Lamont Hill is an influential and high-profile leader of two movements: The Black Lives Matter movement and the anti-Israel movement. The “intersectional” hijacking and crossover of domestic movements in the anti-Israel cause is something we have covered for years.

Lamont Hill just admitted what we all knew, but some people deny: one of the goals of the Black Lives Matter movement is the destruction of Israel. In a Zoom panel event on February 6, 2021, organized by the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA)’s “BDS and Palestine Solidarity National Working Group, National Political Education Committee, DSA Muslim Caucus, and the Afrosocialists and Socialists of Color Caucus,” the panel featured Temple University professor Marc Lamont Hill alongside fellow Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) supporters Omar Barghouti, Sumaya Awad, and Ajamu Amiri Dillahunt.

"Panel frontrunner Marc Lamont Hill is just as virulent an anti-Israel polemicist as his co-speakers. He is perhaps best known in pro-Israel circles for his repetition of the popular Hamas slogan (“From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free!”) during a speech at the United Nations in 2018.
As noted further on in the op-ed, the Reforms also embrace Critical Race Theory, which has surely got to be one of the most horrific wrongs they could possibly commit. And if Naftali Bennett's farcical government with Yair Lapid funds them, they'll be doing something worse than not separating between religion and state. If anything, they'll be funding anti-Israeli movements by extension.

This is of course one of the reasons why I'm disgusted in retrospect at the obnoxious receptions Haredi extremists - many of whom are anti-Zionst/Israel themselves, ironically enough - gave the Women of the Wall in past years. It only helped give them publicity they didn't deserve. Those in the Haredi community who did all that and allowed it owe an apology.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
