Action Alert:
Thank Scarlett Johansson For Speaking Out in Support of the Two-State Solution

Actress Scarlett Johansson recently came under intense criticism by organizations that promote Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) against Israel due to her new role as SodaStream’s Global Brand Ambassador. Johansson not only rejected calls to sever ties with SodaStream, but she expressed her support for peace and the two-state solution between Israelis and Palestinians. Despite her public statement, she continues to be attacked in social media by BDS activists.

 

It is important to thank Scarlett Johansson for her support of the two-state solution.

Jill* made a group of guy friends when she started college in Boston. After several months they invited her to a party. When she got to their apartment there was no party but there was a handsome man who invited her to dinner. >>more

CRC: Advocacy in Action

A blog by Gordon Haas, CRC Chair, Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest NJ

January is Human Trafficking Month Learn What You Can Do

Human trafficking is modern day slavery, and with an estimated 27 million people enslaved worldwide, it is a prominent issue for all communities. A rapidly growing criminal industry second only to drug dealing and equal in scope to arms dealing, New Jersey is a prime location because it’s a major national and international transportation and shipping corridor.

January is Human Trafficking Prevention Month and January 11 is Human Trafficking Awareness Day. These dates are now official law in New Jersey, thanks to the strong advocacy of the N.J. Coalition Against Human Trafficking, facilitated by the Community Relations Committee (CRC) of Greater MetroWest NJ, and the strong support of Governor Chris Christie and New Jersey legislators. In fact, this year, New Jersey was rated by the Polaris Project the number one most improved state in the U.S. for having a basic legal framework that combats human trafficking, punishes traffickers, and supports survivors.  >>read more
