Protest targets Chase Bank branch in Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz Sentinel

Temple Beth El Rabbi Shifra Weiss-Penzias on Tuesday holds up three pieces of Passover matzah during a protest a Chase Bank in Santa Cruz. The action was part of series of protests throughout the United States and Canada during the weeks around Passover where Jews and allies are gathering outside the branches and offices of the banks and asset managers that exacerbate the climate crisis by investing their money in fossil fuels. The recently founded international movement organizing the protest is called Dayenu (“enough” in Hebrew) and Temple Beth El’s Dayenu Circle organized the local event.
