Partners in Action – CAM’s Coalition Taking a Stand Against Anti-Semitism
April 16, 2021
Each week, we highlight the activities of our partner organizations around the world who are doing amazing work to combat anti-Semitism in their communities.
The week of April 12th marked the back-to-back holidays of Israeli Remembrance Day (Yom HaZikaron) and Israeli Independence Day. Many of the Combat Anti-Semitism Movement’s partners commemorated victims of anti-Semitic terrorism in Israel and celebrated the country’s successes as a leader in pandemic solutions and interfaith relations. At the same time, the Combat Anti-Semitism Movement’s partners also raised awareness of troubling anti-Semitic incidents taking place around the world today.
We would also like to wish all of our Muslim partners and friends a joyful and blessed Ramadan as they celebrate their holy month.
