CAM Weekly Roundup: Partners in Action
January 14, 2021
The week of January 10th, the Combat Anti-Semitism Movement’s partners addressed anti-Semitism in the media, on campuses, at the US Capitol, and many other places. If one thing is clear, working together makes Jewish communities across the globe stronger and safer.
From supporting B’nai B’rith International’s call for an inquiry into the murder of a B’nai B’rith leader in 1989 to urging Johns Hopkins University to hold a TA responsible for anti-Semitic tweets with the Baltimore Zionist District, CAM is here to support our partners every step of the way.

We are appalled that, 32 yrs after his murder, there is still no justice for Joseph Wybran. We call on Belgian parliament to launch an inquiry into the failed investigation & eliminate any statute of limitations for crimes of terror.
