10 years have passed since IJV was founded. Come celebrate this milestone with us and join in growing the movement! Whether you’re Jewish or not, an expert or just curious, this will be a great opportunity to connect, learn and organize together.
The weekend will include:
▪ fascinating and informative panels covering each of our three themes (Palestine solidarity; Anti-racism and Indigenous solidarity; and Justice-oriented Jewish communities);
▪ exciting workshops to build our capacities and be more effective;
▪ a participatory General Members Meeting (GMM) in which you can have input in how IJV develops;
▪ and of course a big celebration of IJV@10.
