Reclaiming Judaism from Zionism: Stories of Personal Transformation

Join Jewish Voice for Peace, Philadelphia and Tikkun Olam Chavurah to celebrate the new anthology Reclaiming Judaism from Zionism: Stories of Personal Transformation. Speaking will be Rabbi Linda Holtzman, Tali Ruskin, Rachel Winsberg, and JVP Deputy Director Rabbi Alissa Wise.

In this powerful collection of personal narratives, forty Jews of diverse backgrounds tell a wide range of stories about the roads they have traveled from a Zionist world view to activism in solidarity with Palestinians and Israelis striving to build an inclusive society founded on justice, equality, and peaceful coexistence.
