    Throughout our history, JFREJ has been faced with choices about whether or not to address issues that come up in relation to the Israeli occupation of Palestine. While we have a statement expressing our opposition to the occupation, the focus of our work and organizing efforts is here in NYC and on local issues. Given our most recent history on this matter, and since our organization is in the midst of a strategic visiting process, we have decided to set aside some time for an organization-wide discussion about this issue. We particularly want to look at how the issue plays out in NYC and intersects with and/or impacts our campaign and program priorities.
