Form of…a noisemaker…shape of…an online petition campaign against nuclear attack.

Love Hillel? Love Purim? Hate the threat of an imminent nuclear attack by Iran? (Yeah, me too.)

Predicated on the link between Purim (Persia is now Iran, remember) and today’s situation with those ornery folks over in Iran, Hillel (in the wake of last weekend’s Spitzer Forum), has initiated Team Groggerforce, which only sounds like a Saturday morning cartoon or a fictional TV series featured in the Tarantino film “Pulp Fiction” (“Fox Force Five. Fox, as in we’re a bunch of foxy chicks. Force, as in we’re a force to be reckoned with. Five, as in there’s one… two … three… four… five of us.”)

Students at the joint Hillel Spitzer Forum on Social Justice/Jewish Council for Public Affairs (JCPA) Plenum learned about the growing threat from Iran, and spent a day lobbying Congressional leaders on Capitol Hill to continue supporting sanctions on Iran until their leaders abandon their pursuit of nuclear weapons.

This petition enables you to stand with them and let your voice be heard. Please share this with your friends. Hillel is proud to do its part to educate students and the broader community about the growing crisis in Iran. Let’s hear your groggers make some noise!

I know a lot of people doubt the efficacy of these online petitions. But at the end of the day, I’d rather have signed it than have not signed it. It takes three seconds. Who knows…couldn’t hurt.
