Donor Fraud: Jewish Donor Dollars Support anti-Israel Speakers UPDATED

"Donor Fraud" is when money is raised from Jewish donors on the pretext that it will be used to support the Jewish community, and instead some of that money is used to actively promote those who viciously attack Israel, the Jewish state.

Ronit Jacobs of New Jersey was one of dozens who showed up outside the 92nd Street Y Thursday evening, July 11, to protest the Y's use of Jewish communal dollars to promote anti-Israel speakers.

“The Y needs to provide some oversight, some planning in their programming, they need to know when people they are bringing in to speak are against Jews and Israel,” Kadish added.

Others pointed out that speakers recently scheduled to speak, such as Roger Waters and Alice Walker, are not merely supporters of BDS, but are global leaders of the movement.

Allen said he believes the goals the group set were accomplished Thursday night.

“They [92nd Street Y administration] are aware of our positions and they know we aren’t going away.  We’ll be back, the second Thursday of every month, educating the Jewish community about the dangers of BDS that the 92nd Street Y is using Jewish communal dollars to support it.”

UPDATE: An astute reader brought to the attention of The Jewish Press the dearth of  programming of “Jewish Interest” at the 92nd Street Y, as evidenced by their own website.  This is a screen capture:

  1. Sedition, pure and simple.

  2. the 92nd street Y needs a house cleaning with a big broom and pesticide. then start over again.

  3. I am pleased to see someone organizing this effort. Thank you.

  4. The Y has the right to give money to whomever they please. I really don't see the issue here.

  5. Gideon Jones says:

    You obviously don't because nobody said whom they should give the money to. They are arguing that if the Y is going to give the money to Anti-Israel and Anti-Jewish causes they should be open and honest about it and as a result those who disagree with the Y's choice should give their money elsewhere.

  6. Anonymous says:

    Alice Walker's personal background makes her anti-Semitism even more despicable.

    From Alice Walker's Wikipedia listing:

    In 1965, Walker met Melvyn Rosenman Leventhal, a Jewish civil rights lawyer. They were married on March 17, 1967, in New York City. Later that year the couple relocated to Jackson, Mississippi, becoming "the first legally married inter-racial couple in Mississippi".[33][34] They were harassed and threatened by whites, including the Ku Klux Klan. The couple had a daughter Rebecca in 1969. Walker and her husband divorced amicably in 1976.[35].

    In the mid-1990s, Walker was involved in a romance with singer-songwriter Tracy Chapman.[.

  7. Ltc Howard says:

    consult a lawyer. Get donors to sue for fraud. Get demand for complete accounting of all expenditures to make sure that there is nothing shady going on.

I was employed there but they couldn't tolerate my conservatism, which I kept quiet about, but they spotted my Sarah Palin bumper sticker on my car, and after that I was finally forced out. After leaving, I let them know, in no uncertain terms, my feelings, and G-d's, concerning their anti-Israel stand at the United Nations.
