Speaking Out Against Anti-Semitism

As someone who lives in a big city, in an area with a lot of Jews, it’s easy to forget that anti-Semitism exists. However, it not only exists, but there has been a dramatic leap in the number of anti-Semitic incidents reported over the past year, likely due to Israel’s offensive on the Gaza Strip back in January. It leaves me wondering: What should people do when they hear a slur against the Jews? What if they see a Jew getting attacked? If we criticize Israel’s actions, does that make us anti-Semitic? I don’t know the answers, but I do know that anti-Semitism is something we have to talk about!
