Abstract

ABSTRACT:

What is a generation? Surely it is not just a matter of age or biology, but something more—a collective frustration with the world as it is and a desire to find new ways to change it. Occupy, Black Lives Matter, fossil-fuel divestment activists, Dreamers, the Parkland protesters, Democratic Socialists of America—all of these movements led or dominated by young people mark a generation coming into its own. Young American Jews, too, have picked up the torch. Over the past few years, a growing number have joined groups like IfNotNow and Jewish Voice for Peace to organize against Israel's occupation and stand in solidarity with their Palestinian peers. Pictured in this Last Page is an IfNotNow member being arrested outside Chuck Schumer's New York offices this spring.
