Documentary • 2022 • 17 minutes • English w/English subtitles
Everyone knows that Israel is a tough subject, but something has been changing recently. In the past, Jewish students were openly attacked for defending Israel but now they are being marginalized from progressive spaces just for being Jewish.
Suddenly groups that are fighting for human rights, civil rights, climate change and other causes no longer want to include Jewish students.
As our lives have moved into digital spaces, so has this marginalization.
Dive into this reality by hearing first-hand accounts of what students — and influencers like Blake Flayton, Peter Fox and Julia Jassey — are experiencing today.
It’s not just their story, it’s yours too.
