You know antisemitism has greatly increased in the past 5 years; you may not know how much it’s increased in our schools and on college campuses. Kehillah High 8th graders admit they’re afraid to stand up to antisemitism; swastikas and “heil Hitlers” are common in many of their schools. College students tell Jewish friends not to apply to certain campuses, where they’re afraid to wear anything identifying them as Jewish. 

ADL has resources and tools to help the Jewish community know what to do when they experience or witness antisemitism. 
“Words to Action: Standing Up to Antisemitism” empowers participants to understand and respond constructively to antisemitism, and all forms of prejudice and hate.

Focus on Abortion:
Americans Share their Stories

Author and photographer Roslyn Banish gives both face and voice to 62 individuals who have either experienced an abortion themselves or through someone they love or have treated. The storytellers in Focus on Abortion come
 from diverse socio-economic backgrounds, different regions and are of varied ages, but they each touch on the complex circumstances leading to the difficult decision to end a pregnancy. Banish has published a number of books and has exhibited her works in England and the United States.
