Mass Student Strike Planned for the Land & People of Israel!

In response to the silence of the Jewish leadership on the planned expulsion of 300,000 Jews from Judea and Samaria, the division of Jerusalem and the abandonment of the holy Temple Mount, Jewish students across North America are saying, "No More!" Numerous dedicated Jewish students in yeshiva/high schools, girls schools and elementary schools in states including New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Illinois and California, and in Canada, have been working to mobilize their fellow students in preparation for mass walkouts to protest the silence of the Jewish leadership.

There will be a telephone conference call on Sunday September 7th at 6 PM New York time (EDST). It is very important that all interested students participate in this telephone meeting.

Conference Dial-in Number: (218) 339-4300
Participant Access Code: 119403#

If you'd like to voice your opinion at this meeting, please send an email to and include your name, school and city. I will send you back a number. When we are ready to take questions, I will call your number. We are doing this so that you can remain anonymous.

As the representative of the protest group to the establishment, I will present the following demand on behalf of the student leaders:

The Jewish establishment must set into motion a serious plan to protest the expulsion by Tuesday, September 16th 12:00pm. The protest plan of the Jewish Establishment will have to be submitted for review to no later than Friday September, 12th at 11:00am.

This campaign is very serious and the youth involved have been working hard to make it a reality. After the expulsion from Gush Katif 3 years ago many youth in America were shocked by what happened, and they have vowed not to remain silent in the face of another expulsion.

Date, Time & Place for the Strikes:

Date - Thursday, September 18th

Time - Starting 9:00am - TBD
Place - Yeshivas/High Schools, Girls Schools and Day Schools across North America (list of schools growing daily)

The ball is now in your court,

Yosef Rabin - Representative of the Student strike leaders

Ted Belman
