Why we are signing on the Green Line

19th January 2014

Liberal Judaism, and its youth movement, LJY-Netzer, are proud to be supporting the Sign on the Green Line campaign, which has  been set up by 16 young people from across the community.

The campaign asks organisations and individuals in the Jewish community to commit to only using maps of Israel which show the 1949 armistice lines, also known as the Green Line, or the 1967 borders. We do this because we are committed to a just peace for both peoples, and a two state solution.

LJY-Netzer movement worker, Graham Carpenter, says: “At LJY-Netzer we recently voted our  theme of the year for 2014 to be ‘Ani V’atah Neshaneh Et Ha’olam’ – ‘You and I shall change the world’. This enables us to engage with big political issues facing us as British, Liberal Zionist, Liberal Jews, and focus on our ability to enact social change. That is why we joined the Sign on the Green Line campaign, and pledged to only use maps of Israel with the correct state lines, as getting everyone to work from the same map then enables us to further the conversation on our future vision for Israel.”
