Incidences of Antisemitism are rising at an alarming rate. Our community is coming together, and asking our elected officials, interfaith partners, and friends to join us in standing together against hate.

Whether Antisemitism comes in the form of age old hatreds against the Jewish people, or in the form of more modern myths and stereotypes about Israel - we must stand up to any such attacks against our community.

We hope you will join us to Stand Against Antisemitism!
