In less than 24 hours, our fundraiser to help Linda Sarsour stay safe from escalating threats reached its goal of $10,000! Thank you to the 307 contributors for your generosity and to everyone who spread the word to make this show of Jewish solidarity possible.
I am so proud of our community for showing up so quickly when called upon to act. I want to pass on Linda’s beautiful message of gratitude to this community:
"My family and I are grateful beyond words. You, my Jewish sisters and brothers embody the Judaism I have come to know and love, a faith of compassion, justice and a deep commitment to collective liberation. We are not always going to agree on issues but you can always count on me to be a fierce advocate against anti-semitism because harm to your faith is harm to mine. I am taking all the precautions I can to stay safe and knowing that you are a part of that warms my heart and is an indescribable and remarkable feeling.
You are truly my sisters and brothers in faith and humanity. We will not be divided no matter how hard they try. We will always be an example to the world of what true solidarity looks like."
