Abstract

In this essay, the author reports on opposition by Wendy Kenin, an Orthodox Jewish woman, to the U.S-Mexico border wall being built by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Her opposition is based on her support for indigenous people who live along the International Boundary Zone. Kenin makes connections between Jewish and Native American legacies of spiritual connection to the land and oppressive relocations and genocide.
