Perseverance Pays Off in the Fight Against Antisemitism

February 24, 2022

With the reinstatement of a pro-Israel student organization at Duke University, this week demonstrated the fruits of perseverance in the fight against antisemitism.

History has shown that standing up for the Jewish people may not always be easy, but it is the moral and just path.

Here is a sampling of what CAM coalition members were up to this week:
