Sunrise DC’s litmus test on Zionism shocks mainstream Jewish organizations

You have surely read about the decision by the Washington DC branch of Sunrise Movement, the five-year-old group demanding action to stop climate change, to withdraw from a Freedom to Vote Rally in the capital tomorrow because of the participation of three Zionist groups in the coalition sponsoring the rally.

The decision shocked Jewish establishment organizations because it seems to portend a political future in which Zionism and progressivism are irreconcilable. Centrist Jewish groups accused Sunrise DC of antisemitism, while liberal Zionist organizations called the decision wrong. Many pro-Israel politicians have also condemned the decision, and the national Sunrise Movement distanced itself from its DC “hub”‘s decision though it did not condemn it.
