Jewish Voice for Peace responds

**This is a reprint from ijn.org, the Intermountain Jewish News web site, regarding an August 19th action done by Front Range Jewish Voice for Peace at the JEWISHcolorado (formerly Allied Jewish Federation of Colorado) offices. We went to deliver a petition to the Federation to demand that their leadership condemn the massacre on Gaza, Operation Protective Edge, which occured throughout July and August of 2014.

--------------------

In Andrea Jacobs’ article “Activists invade JEWISHcolorado” (Aug. 29), Janet Sherman, the Israel programs coordinator of the former Allied Federation, was interviewed.

However, Sherman was not present in the downstairs offices where we, members of Front Range Jewish Voice for Peace, were gathered.

When I was welcomed into the building, Susan Weinberger, the federation’s outreach coordinator, came down to meet me. The only people in the office were some members of the office staff and Susan.

When Andrea Jacobs reached out to us she asked for someone who was present at the action and we more than willingly obliged, which is why Neal Feldman was interviewed. We were honest and confident enough in our action to provide the perspective of one who was present.

Sherman claims that I entered under false pretenses. Actually I was not using pretense. I really had just moved to Denver and wanted to talk about federation programs, namely the one called “Social Iron Dome” that gives donations only to Israel but ignores Palestinian suffering. After I was buzzed in, other members of Jewish Voice for Peace entered. We, as a collective, wanted our voices to be heard. We are not just one person, but an entire group that has a different opinion from JEWISHcolorado policy.
