JRRC Call to Action! Protest Israel Hatefest Wednesday, November 5th, 2015, Ethical Culture Society of Westchester


A Jewish Rapid Response Coalition Call to Action:

The same sponsors of an anti-Semitic, anti-American, Anti-Israel event at the Greenburgh Town Hall on 10/19/15 last week will be back in action next week at Ethical Culture Society (ECS) of Westchester at 7:00 pm on November 5, 2015.  The venue is located at 7 Saxon Wood Road White Plains, NY 10605. The ECS is hosting a vile anti-Israel hatefest co-sponsored by the "Westchester Coalition Against Islamophobia." In actuality this is to be an attack on Jews and Israel and is cloaked under the program title of "Free Speech: Where Do We Draw the Lines?" The speakers are articulate and convincing misinformation disseminators. It is critical that we turn out at this public event, populate the venue, and rebut the lies.


We plan on filling the room with pro-Israel voices and ensuring that the lies receive a more fitting response than the applause from anti-Semites; we need to be there to speak the truth especially during the question and answer period.  We will be lining up in front of the venue by 6 pmwith as many pro-Israel attendees as possible. 

For those needing transportation from New York City we have limited space on a bus that will be leaving from the corner of 59th Street and Lexington Avenue at 5:00 pm. Please email Paul Ferbank at  

Read Daniel Greenfield's article Hate Come to Westchester as a primer to the dangers facing our local community. If you would like, consider bringing signs. 

Speakers for the opposition at the upcoming event include Alan Levine, a Jewish Voice for Peace member, who promotes boycotts of Israel due to its "human rights violations" and its "unlawful occupation [and] collective punishment" of Palestinians. Bina Ahmad is another panelist. Ahmad protested a New York City Council trip to Israel earlier this year accusing Israel of "operating a brutal apartheid regime," "targeting civilians with military operations," "assassinating activists," "shooting children," "stealing land and natural resources," and "indiscriminately targeting and murdering 1000s of occupied civilians."
