taking the words of Jesus seriously

Emergency Forum with Israeli Conscientious Objector Yuval Dag

You are invited to join us for an urgent and important conversation with Yuval Dag hosted by Ariel Gold of Fellowship of Reconciliation and Diana Oestreich of Red Letter Christians.

On March 20, 2023, Yuval Dag refused his military conscription and was sent by an Israeli military court to prison. After growing up with a nationalist identity, Yuval began to question his privilege and how it was maintained through the oppression of Palestinians. “Resistance begins, first of all, with self-reflection and understanding. With the understanding that by wearing a uniform and symbols of a certain body, you choose to represent that body. With the understanding that enlisting in the army is a political choice, and its meaning is to support the military and political agenda, and to take part in it. The understanding that even a small cog contributes to the system’s function.” Yuval decided that he could not in good conscience accept his military conscription. He spent two months in prison for his refusal to serve and today works with the Israeli Refusers Solidarity Network to support other Israeli Jewish Refuseniks.
