How Does JAT Work?

(Return to Top)

You pledge just 10 minutes a day to help counter anti-Israel actions and misinformation and to get the truth told about Israel.

You receive email messages that give you tasks that normally can be completed within those 10 minutes. Sometimes there are several tasks to choose from, and often they can be accomplished using email.

The JAT emails are designed to make your task as easy and quick as possible. They contain complete contact information and often include sample letters or scripts for telephone calls.

Here are examples of actual JAT messages (the links will open in a new window):

The JAT messages are created by the JAT organizing team based on material from a number of sources:

How Do You Join?

(Return to Top)

JAT uses Topica, a free mailing list server, to distribute its messages.


To subscribe to the JAT.Action mailing list, send an email message (the subject and body can contain anything, or even nothing) to the following address (you can probably just click on the link):


Confirming Your Subscription

Topica will extract your email address from header information that accompanies email messages, and they will then send to that address a confirmation message. You will be added to the subscriber list only if you confirm your subscription according to the instructions in that message. (The simplest action is just to hit the "reply" button in your mailer to send the confirmation back to Topica. The confirmation message contains a reference number that identifies your subscription.) These anti-spam measures ensure that no one will be added to Topica lists except at their specific request.

Note also that while Topica does allow us to delete addresses from the subscriber database, it does not allow us to add or edit the addresses. People can join only by subscribing themselves as described above. This means that if your email address should change, you should resubscribe from the new address by following the instructions above. You can unsubscribe the old address as described below or send us email asking us to delete the old address.

Canceling Your Subscription

There is no risk in trying out JAT. Should you decide that JAT is not for you, you can easily unsubscribe by following the simple instructions included with every JAT.Action message. In fact, each message contains, at the very end, a link that you can click to unsubscribe yourself instantly. (This is the only way to cancel a subscription for an email account that is no longer active. We recommend saving old JAT messages for this, as well as other, reasons.) You can also unsubscribe by sending a message to JAT.Action-UNsubscribe@topica.com.

[Note: Topica adds to the messages small, inoffensive advertisements (except for some for tobacco products). Since it would be quite expensive to use a commercial service, we put up with these ads.]

How Can You Help?

(Return to Top)

Members are encouraged to help with JAT projects in a number of ways:

To contact JAT, send email to any of the following addresses (they are equivalent and all reach the same people, so choose whichever one is easiest for you to remember and please don't send messages to more than one of the addresses at the same time):


When submitting suggested JAT alerts, you can make our job easier by following the standard JAT format reasonably closely. Sample letters should follow the recommendations in the footer to JAT alerts. They should be short and non-inflammatory, and they should make the writer's viewpoint unambiguously clear in the first sentence.

Of course, not all suggestions will be followed nor all alerts or sample letters used. Our workload may also make it impossible for us even to acknowledge all submissions. Send them nevertheless!
