About the Film: Boycott traces the impact of state legislation designed to penalize individuals and companies that choose to boycott Israel due to its human rights record. A legal thriller with “accidental plaintiffs” at the center of the story, Boycott is a bracing look at the far-reaching implications of anti-boycott legislation and an inspiring tale of everyday Americans standing up to protect our rights in an age of shifting politics and threats to freedom of speech. The film was directed by Julia Bacha and produced by Suhad Babaa & Daniel J. Chalfen. For more information:

Join us at 5:30pm on Monday, November 7th, at the Marlene Meyerson JCC* for a film screening and Q&A with director Julia Bacha, producers Daniel Chalfen & Suhad Babaa, and subject Brian Hauss, followed by a reception for JFREJ members at 7:00pm.

This event is part of a larger series presented by the JFREJ Israel-Palestine Team as part of a participatory process that engages our neighborhood groups, caucuses, campaign teams, allies, and full membership. Together, we will do some deep learning together; clarify when and how we take action and speak out on the subject; align around a theory of change; and develop a shared understanding of our strategy on Israel-Palestine as a local issue. This series is only open to JFREJ dues-paying members in good standing. If you need to renew your dues or become a member, you can do so at!
