The Jewish-Israel Conflation
Just what is the Jewish Manifesto?
The Jewish Manifesto project gives a voice to the lived experiences of Jews in the Netherlands. What do Jews in the Netherlands need to feel safe and free in Dutch society? How do we effectively combat anti-Semitism? And what is needed to give Jewish culture and Jewish life a place in Dutch society? These are the types of questions we hope to address in discussions with hundreds of Jewish people and people with Jewish backgrounds or connections here in the Netherlands. The manifesto will respond all these questions and more.
The Jewish Manifesto has the objective to increase knowledge about Jews and to counter the tendency to reduce Jewish history in the Netherlands to religion, the Holocaust, and the state of Israel. Our history in this country is long and rich and our lives consist of so much more than trauma, war, and pain.
Our final discussions for this round are in January 2024. If you haven’t joined us yet, now is your chance.
Jan: The Jewish-Israel Conflation
For many Jews in the Netherlands, being Jewish is reduced to Israel/Palestine or the Shoah. During our final discussion together for the Jewish Manifesto, we will discuss what this means for us. And how we see ourselves as connected — or not — to Israel.
