The Name "Tag Meir" was coined in response to the name Tag Mechir, Price Tag. In recent years, a small percentage of extreme right-wing settlers have chosen to respond to what they perceive as discrimination against them by the Israeli government by performing acts of violence and desecration against Arabs, Christians and minority groups in Israel and the territories. The settlers label their attacks Tag Mechir, Price Tag, with the intention of sending a coercive message to Israel's government: this is the price you pay for failing to support our cause as we see fit.
Our Grassroots Supporters
Tag Meir seeks to transcend religious divides, enlisting support from across the Israeli spectrum, from secular through Reform and Conservative to Orthodox and Ultra-Orthodox.
Tag Meir is the umbrella organization that runs a coalition of partnership with a forum of 48 organizations and institutions in Israel, from the social justice-focused New Israel Fund to Jerusalem's religious and cultural institution Beit Avi Chai. Our partner organizations help to direct the work of Tag Meir, and to publicize its events, many of which are held at short notice following racist attacks.
