1. Learn About And Share the Jewish Student Bill of Rights

By Club Z

Anti-Semitism is growing on campuses across the country, from kindergarten through graduate school. A Club Z survey of Jewish teenagers found that half of the students do not wear items that easily identify them as Jews in public. For American Jewish teens, Israel and Zionism is inextricably linked to their Jewish identity. Manifestations of anti-Semitism span not only classic tropes of Jew-hatred but also include expressions of demonization and delegitimization of the Jewish State.

Schools have a duty to protect students of all backgrounds, to provide a safe learning environment, and to teach fair and factual curricula. To guarantee an education without fear of harassment, intimidation, or violence, and combat bigotry and anti-Semitism in our public schools, Club Z Teens calls on the relevant government bodies to adopt the Jewish Students Bill of Rights. Read here.

1. Anti-Semitism or Not?

By Susanna Kokkonen

Nazi anti-Semitism has been defined as Genocidal anti-Semitism because in the Nazi world view there was no room for the Jews. If there is no room for the State of Israel in the worldview of a person/movement, then this too should be defined as Genocidal anti-Semitism. The goal is the same if taken to their logical conclusion. Read Here

“Combat anti-Semitism (CAM) is a non-partisan, global grassroots movement of interfaith individuals and organizations united to combat anti-Semitism. CAM exposes anti-Semitic activity from across the ideological spectrum and highlights those working to fight against its resurgence. One of the most pernicious forms of modern anti-Semitism is the effort to deny and delegitimize the Jewish people’s right to self-determination and their profound historic, religious and cultural connection to their ancestral homeland, Israel. Humanity flourishes when religious, ethnic, and cultural diversity is respected, and we hope to encourage understanding and set an example through our work. Anti-Semitism is the oldest form of bigotry and by working to eliminate it, we hope tragedies like the holocaust or any incidents of hate inspired speech or violence perpetrated against the Jewish people, Israel, or any discriminated group are reduced significantly.”
