Think Anti-Semitism is No Longer a Problem?

What will you do if…

  • Your middle school daughter tells you that kids were telling Holocaust jokes at school.
  • You invite some neighbors over for a barbeque and someone makes an anti-Semitic comment about Israel.
  • Your sixth grader asks you why some friends threw pennies at him when he walked into school that morning.

Contact an ADL office in your area to learn more about how to equip your child and yourself to respond to these and other modern-day manifestations of anti-Semitism.
