Reblog if you have ever had a miscarriage, stillbirth, premature birth or lost your baby due to any other reasons. I bet 99% of people know the ribbon of breast cancer but do you know the ribbon of loss? Did you know that it’s also more common to loss a child/baby then it is to get breast cancer yet speaking about child loss is sooo hush hush. No longer will I hide in silence. No longer will I keep quiet. I LOST A BABY GIRL. I HAVE BEEN TOUCHED BY CHILD LOSS.

I'm looking into Israel-related charities currently, so I'd like to get your thoughts on them. I am a proud Zionist, but I also want to help Palestinians. With that in mind, how do you feel about Hadassah? Ifnotnow?

Hi there!

I personally have never heard Hadassah talk much about the Conflict- I would assume that they maintain a very neutral stance so that they do not alienate anyone that sits on the political right or left.

I would recommend not donating to IfNotNow.  Similar to Aipac’s shift further towards the political right over the past few years, IfNotNow is shifting to the far-left.  Both the far right and the far left are dangerous territories to sit in as they tend to be pretty divisive, “black and white,” and extremist in nature.  A recent example is how the Chicago chapter of IfNotNow not only didn’t condemn the Dyke March organizers for removing Jews from their march, but they congratulated them.  I do not donate to organizations that promote exclusion or antisemitism - even if they are branded as a Jewish organization.

But there are many pro-Israel and pro-Palestinian, pro-peace, organizations out there!   The following (some are just pro-Israel, but not inherently anti-Palestinian) come to mind right away!

I hope that this helps!
