Shockingly the Pears Foundation - the main funder of Jewish Community projects in the UK which describes itself as "a British family foundation rooted in Jewish values" - funds Crisis Action which is lobbying to persuade the EU to impose a boycott of goods produced in the Disputed Territories of Judea and Samaria.
Look at the list of "current funders"......
Does Pears believe that a boycott of Israeli goods is consistent with "Jewish values"?
Pears really needs to become more discerning about its funding decisions, if it is not to become part of the problem rather than part of the solution to antisemitism:
I asked Pears to comment on their funding of Crisis Action but they did not respond.
