I’m crowdfunding a book on how to fight antisemitism. When the forces of evil are arrayed against us, it is vital that we find strength and solace in our community. I am thinking of all my fellow Jews in these darkest of times, and I want you to know: you are not alone. The horrific events of October 7, where 1,400 Israelis were mercilessly massacred by Hamas and 240 taken hostage in Gaza, have left an indelible mark on our hearts.
In the aftermath of this tragedy, and amid the surge of worldwide protests that often tilt more toward antisemitism than pro-Palestinian advocacy, many in our community are grappling with a profound sense of helplessness and a need to channel our grief and anger into something productive.
I refuse to succumb to this feeling of helplessness. Instead, I choose to find a way forward. Each of us possesses unique talents and connections that can be harnessed in the fight against antisemitism. For me, that way forward is through writing and storytelling.
I am currently working on a book aimed at illuminating the ways we can combat antisemitism in …
- The Workplace
- Online Spaces
- Educational Institutions
- Public Spaces and Communities
- Political Arenas
There are people who are successfully fighting antisemitism in these arenas, and I aim to tell their stories and let them give advice on what you can do in your own life. This book is not just about shedding light on those fighting anti-Jewish hatred but also about shining a mirror that reflects the actions all of you are taking. I will launch this project through Kickstarter next month, and I hope you’ll support it. If you’d like to receive updates on the project’s launch, please sign up here. I’ll also give updates in my Substack newsletter.
Remember, you are not alone. Together, we will navigate through these challenging times and emerge stronger.
