CONFRONTING ANTISEMITISM - TOOLS FOR TEENS
When antisemitism is as prominent in the world as it is now, people need help dealing with it and making good decisions about how to respond, which can be challenging during the actual moment. The best way to make a good decision in a bad situation is to think about it before it happens. To be prepared for the unexpected. Many of us feel helpless to stand up for Jewish rights and for Israel.
Leaders from the teen organizations BBYO, NFTY, NCSY, and USY call on YOU to unapologetically stand up for what is right and be an ally for acceptance everywhere. We are calling on Jewish teens everywhere to speak up against intolerance, take action, and make a change. As the future of the Jewish people, it's time to make our voices heard.
