Once again, OC Federation asked to endorse pledge to deny funds to those who support BDS and those who seek to destroy Israel


On December 28, 2010 The Orange County Independent Task Force on Anti-Semitism,  formally asked  the Orange County Jewish Federation, Hillel and the Rose Project. to adopt the Jewish Community of San Francisco’s guidelines for funding. Among other things, the guidelines prohibit funding for any activities that “advocate for, or endorse, undermining the legitimacy of Israel as a secure independent, democratic Jewish state, including through participation in the [BDS] movement, in whole or in part.” On March 21, 2010, we published the Pledge in memory of the Fogal Family.  To date those entities, The OC Jewish Federation, Hillel and the Rose Project have not bothered to respond. The following  letter is endorsed by the Orange County Independent Task Force on Anti-Semitism:

Dear Mr Elcott

We are writing to request that you sign this Pledge  in memory of the Fogel family on behalf of the OC Jewish Federation. This is a necessary first step, to ensure that Jewish philanthropic funds are never used to support or endorse organizations, activities or events that, directly or indirectly, are involved in BDS or de-legitimization of Israel.

Signing the Pledge will show your local community, that its leaders are committed to the defense of Israel, and that you are taking strong steps to recognize and resist what is becoming institutionalized anti-Semitism Please Click  Here to sign the Pledge on behalf of your Jewish Federation

Best wishes
