Mishkan Ha’am Adult Ed – Screening and Discussion of Boycott


February 12, 2023    
11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Event Type

As part of our Israeli book/film discussion series, we are partnering with Just Vision films to offer a virtual screening and discussion of the recently released Boycott. We will watch the film together, and then have an opportunity to hear from Just Vision’s Public Engagement Manager. This film and discussion will offer an opportunity to explore how relationships to Israel can play out in the American political landscape. As Just Vision describes:

“Over the past six years, unbeknownst to most Americans, 34 states passed laws intending to silence boycott and other nonviolent measures aimed at pressuring Israel on its human rights record. These dangerous bills remove the legal protection that has been awarded to boycotts for generations, granting governments the power to condition jobs on political viewpoints. As this wave of anti-boycott legislation has swept through the country, so has a counter-wave in defense of freedom of speech. Everyday Americans are challenging these laws for their constitutionality in a nation-wide battle likely to go all the way to the Supreme Court.”
