This is a recording of the phone conference with three young Jewish activists: Rae Abileah, Mirit Mizrahi and Michael Deheeger, on the February 2011 fast day of Fast for Gaza. Mirit Mizrahi and Rae Abileah are part of Young Jewish and Proud, the group that disrupted Prime Minister Netanyahu's speech at the General Assembly of the Jewish Federations in New Orleans. Michael Deheeger is a community organizer in Chicago who has recently become active in advocating on issues of Israel/Palestine in the Jewish community. This unusual interview facilitated by Rabbis Brant Rosen and Brian Walt is important and inspiring. What a treat to hear such ideallistic, articulate and committed young Jews who are determined to claim their voice and space in the Jewish community.
