Although some see anti-Semitism as a thing of the past, the hatred and intolerance of anti-Semitism remain powerful and significant realities today. Anti-Semitic graffiti appears with regularity on the walls of buildings in our communities and on the desks in classrooms in our schools. Anti-Semitism remains a serious concern, as evidenced by the persistent scapegoating of the Jewish community in response to a variety of national events and crises, the increase of anti-Israel activity on campus with a corresponding targeting of Jewish students, and threats against Jews around the world by groups that challenge Israel’s right to exist.
The Confronting Anti-Semitism Program is an interactive education program for middle and high school youth and adult family members designed to empower and equip the Jewish community with constructive and effective responses to anti-Semitic incidents and the persistent anti-Semitic stereotypes that are often at the root of such incidents.
The Confronting Anti-Semitism on Campus Program for college and college-bound students provides tools to effectively respond to anti-Semitism and anti-Israel bias on campus. Designed to meet the unique needs of each community, Confronting Anti-Semitism on Campus provides students with the knowledge, skills and motivation to take action in the face of anti-Semitic prejudice and bigotry.
