Understanding antisemitism

Resources for Navigating, Understanding, and Talking about Antisemitism

Often referred to as the longest hatred, antisemitism is insidious, and sadly, not only present but increasing in our country and in our world. Antisemitism is not the reserve of a singular political side, and it is not a zero-sum game.  With rates of antisemitic incidences increasing dramatically year over year since 2017, the Jewish community and anyone who cares has cause for alarm.  We encourage you to use this page as a resource to learn about antisemitism in all its forms and to find tools to empower yourself and your spheres of influence around issues of antisemitism. 

 

With the ongoing tumultuous situation in Israel that began on October 7, 2023, we have compiled resources for you to learn more and provide support to Israel and those closely connected to the Jewish homeland here.
