Israel and Antisemitism: A Resource Collection

Since October 7th, 2023, the rapidly rising incidents of antisemitism and hate crimes directed against American Jews spiked again to levels unprecedented in modern history. This change in our local and national communities brings challenges to each of us, our families, and the Jewish community.

To help us navigate this new landscape, we have curated a list of valuable resources that are focused on three large areas: educational, activism, and social emotional support. Within each of these categories, you will find materials focused on particular clusters of issues or groups, as well as whether that is geared toward adults, teens, or younger children.

In a time where social media doesn’t readily distinguish between fact-based and sensationalist reporting, our goal is to provide you a vetted landing source for the information and resources you and your family need. We also hope that you will feel free to forward the link to this page to organizations with which you are connected. It is important that we help them learn more about antisemitism, antizionism, and the struggles with which the American Jewish community is contending. The more we can share the fact-based story of Israel and antisemitism with the larger world, the better that is for society and for us.
