Jew-hatred is on the rise across the world, including the United States, and now is the time to stand up and be counted in the battle against this age-old evil.

Jew-hatred is on the rise across the world, including the United States, and now is the time to stand up and be counted in the battle against this age-old evil.

Last month’s Israel-Gaza violence was accompanied by an unprecedented outburst of antisemitism in the U.S., with Jews being physically assaulted and verbally harassed, and Jewish sites suffering damaging vandalism.

On Sunday, July 11th, at 1 PM EDT, a diverse group of American Jews — left-wing and right-wing, secular and religious — and non-Jewish allies will gather together in the nation’s capital, Washington, D.C., to speak out against antisemitism in one voice, in a powerful display of cross-communal unity.

The “NO FEAR: Rally in Solidarity with the Jewish People” is being co-sponsored by the Alliance for Israel, Anti-Defamation League, American Jewish Committee, and B’nai B’rith International, and will feature Elisha Wiesel — son of the late Holocaust survivor and Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel.

“Jews always speak up for everyone else. Now’s the time to stand up for ourselves,” Elisha Wiesel said recently.

Anyone who believes the Jewish people have a right to exist in peace and security both in the U.S. and Israel is welcome at this grassroots event.

Those planning to go to the rally are encouraged to create short videos (10-30 seconds in length) sharing their motivations for doing so. Please use the hashtags #JewishSolidarity and #NoMoreFear on social media posts.
