Bund Membership 2021-2022
TSUZAMEN, TSUZAMEN DI FON IZ GREYT! 🚩🚩🚩 Together, Together, The Flag is Ready! 🚩🚩🚩
In 2021, more than ever, we see the importance of being TSUZAMEN - together, even in isolation. Join the Jewish Labour Bund and work with us to continue our 124 year history of fighting for frayhayt, glaykhayt un gerekhtikayt - freedom, equality & justice.
Join as a member to support our ongoing work and be part of an organisation that continues to enact its ideological focus while promoting secular Jewishness, and Yiddish language and culture, as well as living our ideology of doikayt.
Each member receives a membership pack which includes a Bund Membership card and Bund sticker. There is also an option to include a pre-order for a reusable Bund mask as part of your membership. Membership will also get you discounts on certain Bund events throughout the next membership year!
This year we are providing different pricing options to make it easier for those who have lost income in the past year and a half to join up as members.
In the past 12 months we have
