An Open Letter to JK Rowling
Thank you for not caving into pressure to boycott Israel
Dear JK Rowling,
Like millions of people around the world, I’d like to thank you for bringing the magic of Harry Potter into our home. We’ve thrown Harry Potter birthday parties, sewn countless Harry Potter Purim costumes and even – the night before our son’s eleventh birthday – forged an acceptance letter to Hogwarts for him in green ink. You created a world where everyone has the choice to be great.
Now you’ve chosen to stand up for what’s right in a different context – to defend Israel from those who would boycott her – and I’d like to extend a huge thank you.
