Take Action Today to Counter Antisemitism

Take Action: Urge Congress to Counter Antisemitism. NCJW

Antisemitism has been steadily rising in the United States and has skyrocketed since the terrorist attack on Israel launched by Hamas on October 7, 2023. Right now, nowhere in the United States feels safe for Jewish people. Antisemitic hate threatens us in schools and at universities, at our synagogues, at work, and in our neighborhoods. We must not allow this to become the status quo, and now Congress has an opportunity to take action.

The bipartisan Countering Antisemitism Act would strengthen desperately needed federal government efforts to counter antisemitism and ensure that the current administration and any future administration have the tools they need. This historic legislation is the most far-reaching antisemitism initiative ever to be introduced in Congress and would establish a national coordinator within the federal government to implement the White House National Strategy to Counter Antisemitism released in May 2023. The legislation would also promote Holocaust education, help elected officials better understand the threat of antisemitic violent extremism and online hate, and formally establish Jewish American Heritage Month in law.

Tell Congress to pass the Countering Antisemitism Act today to ensure that our government has the tools and resources to protect Jews around the country from antisemitism.
