We are in the midst of a season of celebration, family and friend time, holidays, activity—and most of us have limited bandwidth for the daily news stories that keep unfolding.
But we have a responsibility to see what is happening, including in our own communities. Yesterday, 5 Jews celebrating Chanukah were attacked and stabbed for being Jews. It is the 8th anti-Semitic crime in New York this month. And NY is one of the MOST diverse states in our nation!
As we pause to celebrate, let’s also take note. And then go from resolution to action, helping us create an anti-anti-Semitism Movement in 2020. If not now, when?
