On this episode we spoke with Rebecca Vilkomerson, executive director of Jewish Voice for Peace. Over the past 20 years JVP has grown to become the largest Jewish leftist organization in the US, with over 200,000 supporters and 60 chapters across the country. We talked with Rebecca about the history of JVP, how it’s changed over time, and what today’s rapidly shifting political climate means for their work.
