Calling upon all Jewish people in the Netherlands to join Erev Rav in protesting the normalisation of the genocide in Gaza. This Sunday 10/3 Israeli President Yitzhak Herzog will be opening the Dutch National Holocaust museum alongside the Dutch King Willem Alexander. Why is an Israeli state official being asked to perform such a symbolic act? We believe this is done in order to further legitimise the genocide happening in Gaza by playing into a speech of Jewish victimisation. How can we have moment to remember those who were killed during the holocaust, led by a man such as Yitzhak Herzog’s whose government is currently involved in an ongoing genocide? Our ancestors memory is sacred, our ancestors that died at the hands of fascism and normalisation is now being used to normalise crimes against humanity. In this moment of deep crisis, we want their memories to be inspirations of Jewish resistance and resiliance. Inspirations to Jewish life!

Not in our name! End Dutch complicity!

We are therefore organizing a peaceful protest during the opening ceremony of the National Holocaust museum. We as Jews deserve better! The resilience of the martyrs of the Holocaust guide our actions- because even our dead deserve to rest without having their killings weaponized to normalize the genocide of the Palestinian people.

We aim at letting our presence be heard, in typical Jewish fashion, to show the world that we refuse this instrumentalization. It is a mitzva (religious duty) of “never again”, to reject the attendance of the leader of a state committing genocide.
