Young Jewish Americans supported Palestinian young people on activist Ahed Tamimi's 17th birthday, Jan. 31, protesting her detention in an Israeli Prison. Jewish high school students across the US took to the streets. Ariela, one of the teens leading the action on Wednesday, tells Teen Vogue that the protest proves American Jewish teenagers want peace for everyone — including Palestinians. "I want people to know that the young Jewish people in the streets are the moral voice of our community, that we will stand up for what is right and transform our community in the process," she says. "We love our community — and we will be the generation to end the American Jewish community's support for the occupation. We want to send a message to Ahed that we are with her, we are inspired by her, and that we are fighting for her freedom."
