2016 is upon us in a matter of days and I have decided on my New Years resolutions. I came up with five Jewish-centric ones. They are as follows:
-Keep speaking out and supporting the Senators and Congressmen and Congresswomen who stood up for diplomacy and backed the Iran Deal.-Forcefully speak out against the appalling Islamophobia that is running rampant in American politics.-Make sure my voice is heard in presidential campaign and reject pandering that misrepresents what support for Israel really means.-Keep writing and calling the JNF and other charities to tell them that funding settlements isn't building Israel. It's endangering it.
- Write my congressmen and tell them to put pressure on President Obama to finally break the impasse and put an explicit and public plan on the table for a 2 state solution.
