How We Counter Antisemitism

  • Direct work of JCRC with schools, leaders, and institutions in response to incidents.
  • JCRC is bringing ADL’s Words to Action programs to local youth and their parents. The training, previously known as Confronting Antisemitism, will reach youth from four local synagogues and also BBYO-Wisconsin this spring. This programming will include sessions for parents. We are working to share this with the community so that they can participate.
  • Hours Against Hate (HAH) proactively works with schools.
    HAH is continuing to fund work that builds bridges, including funding books about diversity for school libraries.
  • Nathan and Esther Pelz Holocaust Education Resource Center and Jewish Museum Milwaukee, both programs of Milwaukee Jewish Federation, serve many thousands of students and other community members.
  • Jewish Family Services, a partner agency, is hiring a victim advocate for victims of antisemitism.
  • Ongoing relationship building and government affairs is all focused on defending Jews, individually and collectively.
