Readers,

PROTOCOLS has an ambitious mission: gathering and promoting provocative, radical writing and art from the global Jewish diaspora. As you know, this work couldn’t be more timely. PROTOCOLS will be one of only a small number of publications offering high quality and highly-curated Jewish content with attention to leftist and radical politics.

An ambitious cultural mission requires ambitious organizational goals. We plan to publish quarterly, and we plan to compensate our contributors (a rarity in today’s gig-centric economy). It may not be easy to make a living from radical politics, but we’re doing our part by valuing the time, effort and love of our contributors, editors and staff. You can help!

This is a fantastic opportunity for you to make a material commitment to PROTOCOLS’ work. Each issue costs us just over $10,000 to publish. That works out to 60 people giving $180, 150 people giving $72, or 300 people giving $36. PROTOCOLS is a non-profit enterprise, so all the money we raise goes directly to compensating our contributors, printing and material costs, and keeping our website up.

As if that weren’t reason enough to donate, there’s more! Every dollar we raise from readers sends a powerful message to potential funders. It demonstrates that what we’re doing matters – that there’s an appetite for provocative Jewish ideas and art, and for a publication that deals unflinchingly with the most challenging and deep questions facing world Jewry today. As we approach foundations, centers for Jewish studies and other machers, we want to know you’re with us.

Please consider giving $180 – or whatever you can – to help us build a more beautiful and equitable world. Contribute here!
