The JIDF is shutting down *Updated*

Due to lack of funds to keep it alive and because of how lame some people (especially some of my fellow Jews) have been toward me, and to this project, it appears this thing is finished.

I'm tired of fellow Jews (like Brian Cuban, brother of Mark Cuban), and Loren Feldman (of racist "Tech N****" fame) threatening to put my life and that of my family at risk, and going after my various online accounts (to learn more about that, please listen to Ep. #15 of my radio show.)

I'm also tired of this operating at a financial loss.

Unless this project can somehow miraculously raise thousands of dollars, that's it. I was just trying to inspire about 1,000 people who claim to support this work to give just $5 a month in return for years of hard work and to go toward much-needed improvements and expansion of our effort. 

My deepest apologies to the few of you who have contributed in the past. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem that it was enough to keep this project alive and growing.

P.S. For those of you who ever questioned the importance or the impact of the JIDF, here's an excerpt of just one letter I received from a young supporter...which represents a sample of the thousands I have received over the years: 

I am proud to support the JIDF and anyone who fights for Judaism and for Israel. We do not need to lie to gain supporters. So perhaps we do struggle; but we also win time and time again, because we are blessed. I know that often, you feel as if your efforts with the JIDF are futile; but if it were not for you, I would not be as involved as I am. I have never been religious. I never went to Hebrew school, I never had a Bat Mitzvah, and I never went to Temple. But after becoming involved with the JIDF, I joined Hillel at my school. I attended my very first Shabbat. I celebrated Rosh Hashanah for the very first time. I am becoming educated about the history of the conflict in the Middle East. I have always been very proud to be Jewish, but now is the first time when I realized WHY I was so proud to be Jewish....You are fighting the good fight, David, and you are a manifestation of the Jewish struggle - a holy struggle..... Thank you so very much for everything you do!  -Lily Taylor Sokol
