“There are a lot of Jews who have been really affected by the economy,” Rabbi Alana Suskin, a participant in Occupy DC, said. “There may be one synagogue in the country where no one has lost their jobs. Jews also have their poor. It’s the unspoken elephant in the room. Not everybody’s well off. Probably most Jews are part of the 99%.”
While Wall Street is the villain of the #OWS movement, #Occupy Judaism is just a clever name for Jews involved in the aforementioned group.
The whole article itself is worth reading, so I won't waste your time too much with my talking. However, if you don't feel like reading it, just let this quote sink in:
Sieradski called the Occupy movements “one of the most exciting things to happen in American Judaism."
Any mob (and if this isn't a mob, what is?) is predisposed to getting its share of nuts. But when the mob is fighting against financial institutions and "capitalism," I would have liked to have seen Jews in New York be a little more prudent in joining the Flea Party.
By the way, I found the graphic in this post on the Occupy Judaism Facebook page. It's actually really funny. The term "Obamaville" isn't mine, nor is the "Flea Party."
