On October 3, Israeli President Isaac Herzog and former US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley weighed in on how the Jewish Community is fighting back against antisemitism at the 2021 General Assembly. This event provided an opportunity for the Jewish community to come together to reflect, learn, and explore what's next to help ensure the safety and continuing vitality of the Jewish future. If you missed it, we invite you to watch the video recording.
