Jewish Witnesses for Peace and Friends, Fall 2006

How the Vigils Started

Sol Metz and Henry Herskovitz first traveled to Palestine in 2002. Shocked at the treatment decent Palestinians were receiving at the hands of Zionist army, and impressed with the decency, courage and humanity of the Palestinian people, both men returned to Ann Arbor desirous of telling their stories. Henry had meetings with Rabbi Rob Dobrusin of Beth Israel Congregation, Rabbi Bob Levy of Temple Beth Emeth, and Rabbi Aharon Goldstein of Chabad House. All three Rabbis denied Henry access to their congregation at a time of their choosing. Frustrated, Henry gathered Jewish and non-Jewish activists in the Fall of 2003, and decided to take our message to the congregants. Beth Israel was selected (a) because their name literally means ďHouse of IsraelĒ, and (b) this was Henryís synagogue of choice for 15 years attending Yom Kippur services. We continue to seek dialogue with the Jewish community of Ann Arbor.

Why We Vigil

Members of Jewish Witnesses and Friends for Peace take this opportunity to respond to the letter of December 15th, 2004, signed by 34 leaders of the local Jewish and Christian clergy, condemning our weekly non-violent vigils at Beth Israel Synagogue. We also respond to the Ann Arbor City Council resolution and the Ann Arbor News Editorial.

We hold vigils outside this synagogue because Beth Israel is a political institution as well as house of worship, using its faith to promote a nationalist political agenda: support of the State of Israel, and by extension, its actions: specifically, Israels brutal and illegal military occupation of Palestinian lands and the suffering of the Palestinian people.

We want to make it very clear that our condemning Israels use of state power is in no way attacking the Jewish people. The Israeli government is a government like any other and must be held accountable to international human rights standards.

Beth Israel Congregation Rabbi Robert Dobrusin, in his 2003 Yom Kippur sermon stated, insuring the survival of the Jewish State is among (our) greatest responsibilities. Referring to the Jewish foundational myths, he said that the two most vital places of myth (are) the State of Israel and the synagogue.

Ismar Schorsch writes in The Sacred Cluster: Core Values of Conservative Judaism, that the centrality of modern Israel is at the head of its core values. Conservative Jews...visit Israel and support financially every one of its worthy institutions. Israeli accomplishments on the battlefield and in the laboratory, in literature and politics, fill them with pride.

We believe Beth Israel cannot endorse this political agenda and also enjoy the rights of a religious group by claiming to be just practicing their faith. We call upon people to be faithful to the highest values of their religious traditions. This kind of nationalism is a betrayal of these values.

In 2004, The Presbyterian Church (USA) General Assembly voted to investigate selected divestment in multinational Corporations operating in Israel. We commend this action.

Over the years, many of us have joined together with friends of the Jewish faith to publicly denounce the US governments support of repressive governments in South Africa and Latin America, and against the US wars in Vietnam and Iraq. Jewish Witnesses and Friends for Peace confronts both our Jewish and Christian friends to ask a difficult question of people, many of whose values we share:

Why arenít you demanding an immediate end to Israelís terrorist policies towards the Palestinian people, a people who are accorded no right to the land they have lived on and cultivated for centuries?

We know that Israel does not speak or act in the name of all Jews. But we also know that Israel will not change unless pressure is brought to bear by American Jews to end US aid to Israel amounting to 14 million dollars a day. In addition, Jewish charities send $1 billion to Israel annually. The ability of Americans to make what amounts to tax-deducible contributions to a foreign government does not exist with any other country.

The Israeli military is the 4th largest in the world with tanks, jet fighters, helicopter gun ships, missiles, and nuclear weapons in its arsenal. The Palestinian Authority has no army, only a paramilitary police force equipped with small arms. Palestinian irregulars have rocks, small arms and improvised explosives.

Israel's laws and restrictions control every aspect of Palestinian life. US economic aid funds Israel's goal of permanent control of the Occupied Territories: the roadblocks and checkpoints, the thousands of homes and farmlands destroyed, over 200 settlements built on Palestinian land, and the "Separation Barrier." All of this is done with the knowledge and full financial support of the United States and minimal disapproval from the European and Arab countries.

We vigil to remind those who silently oppose the Occupation that their silence only perpetuates the violence. The noted Jewish scholar Marc Ellis, calls this silence the ecumenical deal in which the main energy of ecumenical gatherings of Jews and Christians is spent on diverting the question that hovers over all discussions of Jews and Christians: the oppression of the Palestinian people by Jewish Israelis. In his 1991 article, Beyond the Jewish-Christian Dialogue: Solidarity With the Palestinian People, he explains that because of their complicity in the Holocaust, Christians are reluctant to criticize Jews, and any Jews or Christians who do confront Israeli policy are shut out of the debate or called anti-Semitic.

Marc Ellis offers five statements that could form a more progressive Jewish position:

1. What Jews have done to the Palestinians since the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948 is wrong.

2. In the process of conquering and displacing the Palestinian people, Jews have done what has been done to us over two millennia.

3. In this process, Jews have become almost everything we loathe about our oppressors.

4. It is only in confronting state power in Israel that Jews can move beyond victim or oppressor.

5. The movement beyond victimization and oppression can only come through solidarity with those whom we Jews have displaced: the Palestinian people.

We believe it is illegal and immoral to displace millions of people, depriving them of their homes, their self-determination, their culture and dignity all for the benefit of a single ethnic group.

Therefore, Jewish Witnesses for Peace and Friends vigil in solidarity with the people of Palestine.

Synagogue Vigil Project

Jewish Witnesses for Peace and Friends have organized weekly vigils on Saturday morning at Beth Israel Congregation, a Conservative synagogue in Ann Arbor, since September, 2003. From mid-April 2004 through January 30, 2005, JWPF also held vigils at Hiller's Market, in a shopping plaza fronting on busy Washtenaw Avenue in Ann Arbor, every Sunday afternoon, until it declared victory and withdrew, as described in Highlights. This is one long page, organized in sections, each with several links, as follows.

JWP&F resolution condemns city council
Jewish Witnesses for Peace and Friends unanimously passed a resolution condemning Ann Arbor City Council, in response to Council's resolution condemning the vigils, and affirmed that the vigils will continue. The resolution was read to council at the meeting on February 7, and covered by the Ann Arbor News. The News did a longer story the next day on Beth Israel's protest against the vigils. See the February 5 report below.

Ken Phifer
Rev. Ken Phifer of the Unitarian Univeralist Church has been leading the charge of local clergy against the vigils. He met recently with 2 JWP&F activists and said that he didn't want the Israel/Palestine issue to "split the church" as happened over the Vietnam War; see the January 22 report below.

Hiller's victory
From mid-April 2004 until January 30, 2005, JWP&F held a protest at Hiller's Market in Ann Arbor, one of six stores in a southeast Michigan chain. Owner Jim Hiller had declared his support for Israel, and advertised in the Jewish press that he donates profits from sales of Israeli goods to Israel. There is evidence the protest hurt his business; over the summer a sale was run at the Ann Arbor store only, offering $40 free groceries if $40/wk was purchased for 9 weeks. The Jewish Federation sent out 2000 emails urging a shop-in in support of Hiller, and the Ann Arbor Ghetto, pitifully armed with credit cards and SUVs, heroically rose against its oppressors. We also heard through the Jewish grapevine that his business had been hurt. See below. On January 6, Hiller's Ann Arbor manager John Beckius informed Henry Herskovitz in a meeting that Jim Hiller would no longer be advertising that he donates profits from the sale of Israeli goods to Israel. No quid pro quo was offered or claimed, but JWP&F decided to call off the protest.

Ann Arbor resident responds to clergy (late December)
Jon Swanson of Ann Arbor wrote a letter responding to the 33 clergy who condemned the vigils (below) and sent it to all of them.

Ann Arbor News refuses Hedy Epstein letter (late December)
Hedy Epstein is the Kindertransport survivor and Holocaust educator who joined the vigil on October 2; see Hedy highlights. The Snooze refused to print her letter responding to the Christian clergy who condemned the vigils.

Empire Still Striking Back
Local clergy denounce vigils at behest of organized Jews. See December 15 Media Reports below.

Friends of the IDF help needy war criminals
On December 17, JWP&F organized a demonstration in downtown Ann Arbor near the offices of banks who support the Michigan Friends of the IDF. 25-30 people attended, with printed signs and well-written leaflets, which were given to motorists waiting for traffic lights as well as to pedestrians. See story.
On October 22, 2004, the Detroit Jewish News published a full-page ad from the Michigan Friends of the IDF, thanking their supporters, including 5 Michigan banks. See the ad at http://www-personal.umich.edu/~hersko/Flyers/banks%20of%20IDF.pdf. For discussion of the bank campaign, see vigil reports for November 6, November 13, and November 20. The Jewish Federation held its annual fundraiser on November 29, and the Federation president this year is president of the Michigan Friends of the IDF. JWP&F's protest is in the November 22, 29 report. See also a report about the contortions of liberal Zionists and cowardly Christians over the campaign against support for Israel's atrocities by the banks.

The Empire Strikes Back
The organized Jewish community has declared war on the vigils. City Council passed a resolution against the vigils, see the October 19 news story and the October 16 vigil report. This follows public threats against council by a member of Beth Israel, who posted an "open letter" on the so-called AASPURN web site, which seeks to raise money for Israel against the vigilers. See http://www.aaspurn.org. The letter was later removed.

The Councilmember who drafted the resolution claims absurdly that the vigils violate a state law against disrupting religious services (among other falsehoods in the resolution) and decries the "enormous pain" caused by the vigils, and the impotence of the people targeted---including the local movers and shakers of organized Jewry, who raise funds and organize events and dominate opinion on Israel's behalf. A letter was accepted for publication by the Ann Arbor News but did not run.

A letter of unknown provenance opposing the vigils is circulating among clergy, via the Interfaith Roundtable.

Rabbi Robert Levy of Temple Beth Emeth appeared before the Interfaith Council for Peace and Justice to plead the injured feelings of the Beth Israel congregants. He is leading a trip to Israel February 19-26, a frolic on the beaches of Eilat (pdf) for spring break, totally oblivious to the apocalypse in Palestine.

Noam Chomsky stands with JWP&F (in spirit)
"I'm deeply impressed with what you are doing, and know that it is not easy, to put it rather mildly. I really wish I could join you. It would be a privilege. But the way my life is organized, I have to keep rigidly to a relentless schedule, planned long in advance. Just can't stay on, even for a few hours. Serious commitments that I can't avoid. Hope at least to have a chance to say hello.-Noam"

Noam Chomsky was in Ann Arbor October 28-29, 2004 to give the Davis Markert Nickerson Lecture on Academic and Intellectual Freedom, established by the UM faculty and named for 3 faculty members who were dismissed during the McCarthy period (see http://www.umich.edu/~sacua/AFL/afllecture.html.). Henry wrote to Chomksy, explained the vigils, and asked if he might stay a day longer and stand with us. He could not, but joins us in spirit.

Hedy Epstein, kindertransport survivor and Holocaust educator, stood with us
On Saturday, October 2 (report below), JWP&F was joined by kindertransport survivor and Holocaust educator Hedy Epstein (see http://www.hedyepstein.com). Rabbi Dobrusin of Beth Israel wrote her an email and asked her not to come. She declined his request and affirmed her intention to come, with a poem, and asked to see him while she was in Ann Arbor. See the September 18 vigil report. The Ann Arbor News covered the attempt of the Jewish Federation to prevent her talk at a local church, October 1 story, but not her appearance at the vigil or her talk itself. Rabbi Dobrusin did not respond to Hedy's request to see him in Ann Arbor, and she tried but could not reach him during her time in Ann Arbor. Hedy wrote to the Ann Arbor News to protest the letter of the 33 clergy, but they refused to print the letter and Victor Schaffner, the editorial page editor, did not return her phone call.

Rabbi Jeremy Milgrom sends greetings from Israel
Dear Henry,

My connection with Ann Arbor goes back to the '80's, when I lectured there about justice and peace in Israel/Palestine (hosted by Elias Baumgarten).

I've been following your ordeal via emails posted on the EMEM list, and wanted to convey my support in challenging the silence of the Jewish community to what is going on in the Middle East.

best wishes,

Rabbi Jeremy Milgrom

Kidnapped from his lair in Chicago and tried by righteous Jews at the recent Sabeel conference ... Dan McGowan of Deir Yassin Remembered came from Geneva, NY with a friend to stand with the synagogue vigilers on June 5 (see report), reciprocating our trip to Geneva last fall for the DYR memorial dedication. He described talking over coffee with Finkel, Marc Ellis and Jeff Halper at the Sabeel conference in Jerusalem. Finkel talked down to McGowan, as a non-Jew, but couldn't get over Ellis and Halper, repeatedly professed his amazement and distress, and was so upset he returned to his hotel room to recover; an invitation to dinner with Israel Shamir nearly finished him off.
