Thank you, thank you to the 91,267 people who answered present!
But in 2017, more than ever, we still need you: to weigh and to act!
Dear members, Dear friend, dear friend, dear subscriber,
Ten months ago we launched a membership campaign for our association.
You have been over 90,000 (this morning at 8:00, you were exactly 91,267 or more than 10,000 more than a month ago!) To respond to our call. We thank you a lot!
Beyond the many Jewish and non-Jewish associations that have joined our structure, today you are 91,267 members, direct members, to have joined us. You were seduced by our way of acting, of meeting us, of exchanging, freely, frankly but always in respect, you believed in our way of building a democratic space where the essence of our fight is to defend the Republic of Lights, to defend a paradigm of life that defends the values that make France France.
Many of you have joined us regardless of your origin, your religion or your political opinion but having all in mind to fight for a better life in France, this country dear to our heart!
We all find ourselves, witnesses or actors, to fight hatred, injustice, anti-Semitism, negationism, but also to defend these French values, those of the humanism and enlightenment that rocked our history, our childhood and to build a future that is dear to us and to our descendants! And who are fought day after day by extremist fanatics!
With you, we will continue this fight with force, without language and without compromise, without sinking into an inefficient extremism, or in the useless emotional.
Let us be aware that in the current international and national context, this fight is far from over.
To succeed and to carry out our fight, we need to influence authorities, the media and civil society.
To do so, we need not only an effective structure, and that we think we have built, but also the effect of mass, the effect of the number, that is to say your support for all!
Currently about thirty associations and more than 80,000 direct members are our base while you are nearly 500,000 subscribers to our Newsletter and several million to have visited our site.
Among you there are, of course, Jews, but also a large number of non-Jews who are in the majority and who all share the same values.
You have been more than 80,000 in ten months to have joined us, but to be even stronger, we still need you to multiply our action, to strengthen our listening and to act!
Our Newsletter is now addressed to 1,108,256 subscribers, 600,000 more than last August 8, and we hope to exceed 2,000,000 in January.
We have integrated 500,000 subscribers from September 1st and the rest will be integrated in January because it requires a technical arrangement to be able to broadcast to 2,000,000 subscribers in a reasonable time (especially since our letter is daily).
About 10% read it regularly and about 3% react (which still makes more than 35,000 people). Of course, to reach 2,000,000 people daily, we will have to increase the power of our server.
According to the Alexa Ranking website (see diagram below), which measures the number of visits to hundreds of millions of websites, that of CJFAI - www.cjfai.com - is ranked as the 1st most frequented site among the institutions French Jews. He is ranked 11.761st at the French level (he was ranked 14.683rd in February) while the CRIF fell to 83.168th place (he was ranked 30.321th on August 8th)! Our ranking far surpasses that of so-called anti-racist associations (LICRA, SOS-RACISME, ...). We gained 3,000 places in the ranking in one month while all the other sites fell.
We have progressed on all criteria and in full summer!
You will also find that our rank largely surpasses that of Jewish News and Juif.org (which, for me, is a surprise).
On August 8, only www.juif.org was slightly above the French level, this is not the case today since it is behind us.
Not only are we superbly ranked but our result of attraction of the Net surfers is still much better than August 8 last since with each visit they spend on average 40 'on the site! It is considerable when one notes that on most sites the average is between 1 'and 2'!
Our goal is to reach 100,000 members by December 31, which, given the present figures, seems easily achievable!
We want to raise a crowd, and not, like many others, raise funds!
So, we appeal to you, to your help, by adhering graciously for the year 2017.
Below you will find an interactive membership form.
The more we will be, the more we will be strong!
THANK YOU !
