According to Jexodus.org, the group is comprised of Jewish Millennials who reject what leftist politics has become. They reject the hypocrisy, anti-Americanism, and anti-Semitism of the rising far-left which is permeating Progressives and Democrats. Jexodus’ rallying cry is that it is time to break free from the tradition that “Jews vote Democrat”. Jexodus understands the connection between anti-semitism, anti-zionism and the BDS Movement stating that they would “rather spend forty years wandering in the desert than belong to a party that welcomes Jew-haters”. This sentiment has been echoed by Jexodus’ newest spokesperson, model Elizabeth Pipko whose comments during a Fox TV interview were tweeted by President Donald Trump,
“‘Jewish people are leaving the Democratic Party,’” Trump tweeted, quoting Pipko. “‘We saw a lot of anti-Israel policies start under the Obama Administration, and it got worst & worse. There is anti-Semitism in the Democratic Party. They don’t care about Israel or the Jewish people.’”
Elizabeth Pipko goes against the grain of not only the Democrats but the entire modeling industry by supporting her president as evidenced by her courageously wearing the red ballcap with the 2016 Presidential election slogan, “Make America Great Again”.
Pipko has also been interviewed regarding Jexodus by:

Elizabeth Pipko and Jexodus are not alone in their observation that the Democratic Party no longer represents the interests of Jewish people as a whole. In a recent DailyWire article, columnist Jeremey Frankel writes,
“As Jews, we must open up our eyes to this frightening trajectory. The Left and the Democratic Party are not our friends. They do not support our core beliefs or our people. And it is indeed time that we, as a community, came to the realization that we must walk away.”
