Ben & Jerry’s long-time graphic designer, Susannah Levin, quit her job last week after 21 years of working for the company in the wake of its boycott on Israel.

“Effective immediately, I have quit my job of 21 years at Ben & Jerry’s, over the statement on Israel,” Levin, based in Albany, stated in a Facebook post that has since been removed.

Based on Levin’s Facebook page, she is a frum Jew, with her husband and sons wearing yarmulkes, and one son who made aliyah.

“If you want to get an idea of why, please watch this wonderful video by the great Rabbi Jonathon Sacks, z”l, Levin wrote. “He explains how anti-Zionism IS the new anti-Semitism. My company’s response is part of this despicable trend and I will have no part of it.”

Below is the video that Levin linked to:

  1. Sad that she quit her job due to Zionism. Anti-Zionism is, of course, NOT anti-Semitism. They are very different, in some cases polar opposites, and it is dangerous to Klal Yisrael to conflate the two.

    It is the height of absurdity to allow the Zionists to use Judaism as a “human shield” for their political adventures in the Middle East, all the more so when the very purpose of Zionism is to destroy Judaism and replace it with Zionism.

  2. Of course, Im Eshkecheich Yerushalayim is irrelevant to the Zionist State of Israel, other than that the Zionist State of Israel is holding back Mashiach from coming and has done and continues to do untold damage to Judaism in the meantime.

  3. You are wrong. Though your personal shitah might be that Israel should not be a Jewish state, and you may or may not be right about that, the world looks at it otherwise. To the world, a Zionist is a Jew and a Jew is a Zionist and the land of Israel is the Jewish land. And because they have this view on us (and they dont care that you think otherwise), their anti-zionist sentiments are a cover-up for the less politically correct anti-Jewish sentiments they have. And although you, HaKatan, and all others with your shitah, abhor zionism, to a non-Jew you are still a zionist, like it or not. Just to be clear, Ben and Jerry’s does not have a shitah not to inhabit Israel until the coming of Moshiach. What Levin did was tell the world that all Jews are one and that Israel cannot be used as a weapon to target the Jews
