The executive of the JNF-KKL* has decided to openly fund settlement expansion projects in the West Bank. Canadian Friends of Peace Now has vigorously protested. On Feb. 15, we issued our own statement against the new policy and on Feb. 24 we joined in a similar statement with JSpaceCanada and the New Israel Fund of Canada.

Now we encourage you, our supporters, to speak out via a worldwide petition by Jewish organizations urging the JNF-KKL to reconsider. The executive decision is still to be ratified by the full board, so it’s not too late to make a difference.
