Partners in Action – CAM’s Coalition Taking a Stand Against Anti-Semitism
April 2, 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.
During the week of March 29th, marking the intermediary days of the Jewish spring festival of Passover, many of the Combat Anti-Semitism Movement’s partners engaged in interfaith dialogue and promoted the widespread adoption of the IHRA definition of anti-Semitism. This week also saw a shocking attack targeting an Orthodox Jewish family in New York City.
