The Combat Antisemitism Movement (CAM) sponsored the opening dinner of the National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) Capitol Hill Media Summit in Washington, D.C., on Monday.

The event brought together the leadership of the major Christian media groups in the United States.

In his remarks at the dinner, CAM Director of Christian Outreach and Engagement EJ Kimball highlighted the importance of interfaith solidarity — both in fighting religious bigotry in America and across the world and standing with the State of Israel.

“I want to ask from all of you that we work together to educate your constituencies about the urgency of rising antisemitism on college campuses,” Kimball said. “This threat from college campuses does not isolate itself to Jewish students. Christian students professing their faith are increasingly under attack and we need to stand together and expose this hatred.”

Also in attendance representing CAM at the dinner was Partnerships and Diplomatic Relations Manager Catherine Szkop.

The event was an opportunity to showcase CAM’s latest initiatives and share how it partners with a broad range of allies to build a better future for the Jewish people and all humanity.

At the dinner, the NRB presented Senator Roger Wicker of Mississippi with the 2022 First Freedoms Award.

In addition to its involvement with the Capitol Hill Media Summit, CAM has also sponsored the “Breakfast to Honor Israel” at the NRB’s last three annual International Christian Media Conventions, and is looking forward to continuing to foster this important relationship.
