Stand Together

AGAINST ANTI-SEMITISM AND HATE

On the morning of October 27, 2018, we witnessed the deadliest anti-Semitic attack on American soil to date. Shortly after, Jews everywhere united to mourn the bloodshed at the Tree of Life synagogue. Despite a show of unity and outrage across the world, this new tide of anti-Semitism persists: in Poway, in Halle, Germany, across college campuses, and on the streets of New York City— where more than half of all reported hate crimes in 2019 were anti-Jewish.

One year after Pittsburgh, the Jewish community is once again mobilizing to keep vigil and call out the perpetrators of hate. We invite you to stand together in the following ways:

On Friday night and Saturday, October 25 – 26, join Jews of every stripe as we #ShowUpforShabbat to remember the victims in Pittsburgh and reaffirm the values that unite us as a people. For a list of participating synagogues across the New York area, click here.

#PauseWithPittsburgh and show your solidarity with the Pittsburgh community by participating in a livestream public memorial service on Sunday, October 27, at 5:00 pm. You’ll also have the opportunity to send text messages of support. Click here for details.

We’re petitioning Congress to pass the NO HATE Act.This will incentivize more cities to report hate crimes to the FBI through the creation of hotlines and training programs, making it easier for law enforcement to monitor hate and stop anti-Semitism in its tracks. To sign the petition, click here.

You can also donate to help protect Jewish communities throughout New York, as well as join us Sunday morning, October 27, at 10:00 am, for a Day of Action Against Anti-Semitism alongside various interfaith groups, diplomats, and elected officials.
