My name is Noa Baum, I travel all over the country and perform in many universities with a show that aims at introducing the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through personal narrative. Everywhere I go I meet young people who feel there is no place on campuses for their voice - people who love Israel but want to see another future. who feel being pro-Israel means also being Pro-Palestinian. They are looking for a place where they can learn but also express their concerns, questions and doubts without being labeled "anti-Israel". J street and it's fabulous education fund are stepping in to fill this need. I had the privilege of presenting at the J street conference and meeting many of the wonderful staff and volunteers. What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is the energy and dedication of everyone involved. the staff that I met were incredibly knowledgeable and extremely competent. It was inspiring to see them in action. I know that if this organization gets more financial support their impact would be greater. They could engage thousands more students in this cause, train more student leaders, provide countless educational opportunities, run free or reduced rate trips to Israel and Palestine, and more! The J street Education Fund is a much needed ray of hope that can support a just and sustainable peace in Israel/Palestine.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the energy and enthusiasm of everyone in the staff and the volunteers.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

offer more opportunities for education on campus. sponsor more trips to the Israel that give a more in-depth and balanced view of the situation where the narratives of both people can be heard.

J Street is a fantastic organization. Security through peace - isn't this what everyone wants? Isn't it the intelligent, thought-through, most realistic approach? Finally a group saying it loudly and with conviction.

I stand with J Street because justice, security, and peace in Israel won't come until our conversations are focused on the long-term work we need to do make peace rather than just our short-term fears. Finally, someone gets that- J STREET!

I stand with J Street because as an American-born Jew whose father fought in WWII, I love Israel, and believe passionately in its right to exist, and also think that the path to guaranteeing a future of prosperity, peace and hope involves a two-state solution and reaching out to the Palestinians.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing results of campaigns in which I have taken part. Feeling that pride and sense of community and oneness of spirit.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make them even more active and vocal.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Realizing that I am not even close to being alone as an American Jew who supports and loves Israel but wants to seek a different and better way for a just and peaceful resolution with the Palestinians.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Not applicable.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Help to alter the course of world events in the Middle East. And I write that as no starry-eyed puppy; I am 41, I have lived through the Camp David Peace Accords and the horrifying assassination of Itzhak Rabin.

Ways to make it better...

I do not have any room to offer improvements because my experiences as an online activist have been satisfying.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Countering those conservative Jewish organizations who try to claim that J Street and its supporters are "self-hating Jews" or one of the most vicious descriptions I've read of late, "anti-Semitic Jews."

One thing I'd also say is that...

J Street is one of the new organizations advocating a new way to be pro-Israeli that has given me a renewed hope in the future of Israel and of peace in the Middle East.

My children were born in Jerusalem during the bus and cafe bombings of the second intifada. J Street's powerful voicing of the majority opinion that strong US leadership is required to achieve a peaceful two-state solution gives me hope that Israeli children won't have to live through a time like that again. The J Street conference was fantastic - extremely well-run, welcoming, professional, and very educational. There was a wide range of views on the peace process from solid Center to far left. It felt wonderful to be in a place where we were all committed to israel and could debate how to move forward without villifying each other.

Who would not support J Street, if you really want peace to begin within our lifetimes in Israel and Palestine? I have been working on this issue since 1967 and have seen too many who say they are for a just peace and then hold out for advantage for 'their' side. J Street is part of the solution - plain and simple - so I am with them!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing that more people are now willing to talk about finding a solution for the tension between Israel and Palestine than before J Street.

"I am an Israeli/US dual citizen and like almost all Israelis, a veteran of the IDF. I love Israel and believe that its future as a Jewish democracy cannot be secured by ruling over a hostile population. Our Jewish tradition of justice demands that what we want for ourselves we must allow to others. I don't see how we can achieve that and still remain in the West Bank and Gaza. A two state solution is the best answer currently available."

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

It provides a voice for those who, like me, love Israel but disagree with many of the policies of its government.

"J Street is essential to a balanced and realistic conversation about the two state solution. To think that progressive Jews are marginalized because they do not agree with the right hardliners, and present a humanistic alternative, is a tunnel vision view of the peace process. We all want the same thing...a peaceful Jewish state."

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

is watching it grown into an effective organization that represents Jews who have been marginalized because of their support for a humanistic two state solution in the Mideast.
