The campaign — an initiative of the Foundation to Combat Antisemitism — is encouraging people to post blue squares on social media to stand up against intolerance and show solidarity with the American Jewish community.
Among those taking part in the campaign is former NFL quarterback Tom Brady.

The campaign highlights the fact that while Jews comprise only 2.4% of the U.S. population, they are victims of 55% of all religious hate crimes in the country.
It says its goal is to “wake people up from their indifference and to make them realize that what they perceive as a small problem .is actually quite big.”
