If you would like more resources regarding what is taking place in Israel, and the effect on Jewish communities around the world, you can find them here.
Finally, we know increased antisemitism follows historical patterns: during Jewish holidays, election cycles, and increased violence in the Middle East. Given the horrific events of October 7, 2023 and Israel’s necessary response, we can anticipate an increase in antisemitism both online and in real-life. American Jewish Committee (AJC) has created a resource on how to prevent antisemitism and ensure the safety and well-being of Jewish (and all) employees.
