It’s easy to talk about fighting antisemitism, but how are we tackling the problem as a Congregation? We are taking a three-pronged approach:
Some of this we’re doing from an institutional level, while other opportunities are available for individual congregants. We have collected a number of resources for both adults and children to help you navigate this issue.
Our clergy are speaking out publicly against antisemitism, and are encouraging Jews and allies to call it out when they see it.
Build Awareness | Educate | Act | Resources
In the Spring of 2022, WHC was part of a pilot program, Act Against Antisemitism, jointly coordinated by ADL/URJ Act Against Antisemitism. We offered a four-week Deep Dive course as our first effort at building up the tools needed to act.
Since then, the program, now called Kulanu, has expanded to over 100 synagogues nationwide, including a number from the DMV. 9 local synagogues join antisemitism network [Washington Jewish Week]
We continue to offer educational opportunities to the community around this issue, including the below class led by Rabbi Fischel.
You can get involved personally by following some of the goals the ADL sets out:
