Independent Jewish Voices Canada is a signatory to the ‘Call for Action‘ of the international campaign to Stop the JNF, called upon by Palestinian civil society. In response to this call, we have launched our own campaign in Canada to ‘Expose the JNF’, with the ultimate goal of having its charitable status revoked. As Canadian Jews and supporters of human rights, we are opposed to the JNF’s discriminatory policies of ethnic exclusion, and its role in the historic and ongoing dispossession of Palestinians from their lands. It is truly scandalous that the JNF’s branch in Canada has charitable status, and is therefore subsidized by Canadian taxpayers.
