Shatzi Weisberger Z”L, affectionately dubbed the People’s Bubbie, taught us about what it means to spend all of our days — and not just when it's convenient — fighting like hell for a just and livable future for every single person, from our neighborhoods to Palestine.

In her loving memory, we are proud to invite you to a joyous, online Hanukkah celebration to benefit the Palestinian organizing of @adalahjusticeproject. Join us for a night of comedy, burlesque and political inspiration, as well as stories about the People’s Bubbie and lessons we’re learning about building multi-generational political communities.

This Hanukkah, we are raising $40,000 for Shatzi's favorite US-based Palestinian partner organization, @adalahjusticeproject, which plays a critical role translating what’s happening on the ground to US audiences, building bridges with Black, indigenous, Jewish and other communities, and galvanizing people towards action. In spite of having few resources, Shatzi was a monthly donor for years. The organization is led by an incredible team who Shatzi loved and trusted, and who we are deeply honored to organize alongside.

Israel just elected its most fascist government in history — when 2022 was already on track to be the deadliest year for Palestinians in recent memory. In the face of an unthinkable level of cruelty — carried out with US tax dollars, in the name of so-called “Jewish safety" — what is our responsibility?

Having Shatzi as a Jewish elder who was deeply committed to Palestinian freedom is so meaningful to us. She was dogged in her persistence and didn’t mince words. She demonstrated that there is no contradiction between supporting Palestinian liberation and being Jewish — that we all have long lineages of ancestors who struggled for justice that are ours to claim. Feeling them at our back will allow us to commit ourselves ever more deeply to Palestinian freedom. It will allow us to pick up the torch.

You can RSVP for the celebration and donate at the link in our bio. We can't wait to see everyone there. Bring your grief, gratitude, pride, joy, and love — for Shatzi, for our movement ancestors, for political community, for liberation.
