Radical groups—the far left, radical Muslims, the far right, and African-American extremists—are threatening to destroy the values, structures, and institutions that make the United States so exceptional. These groups are spreading hatred, racism, and bigotry against Jews and all Americans.

On the image above, Rodney Muhammad, the President of the Philadelphia chapter of the NAACP civil rights organization, posted an atrocious antisemitic image on his Facebook page on July 23. The image included a quote falsely attributed to French philosopher Voltaire and a caricature frequently used by white supremacists called "the Happy Merchant" depicting a hook-nosed man in a kippah rubbing his hands together. The offensive caricature was posted alongside photos of Ice Cube, DeSean Jackson and Nick Cannon, all of whom recently also posted antisemitic comments on their social media.
In his new article, We Must Act Now to Fight Antisemitism, Adam presents a transformative approach to fight antisemitism and protect America’s future. Rather than waiting for Jew-hatred to chase us, he calls for unified action that goes on the offensive against the looming threat.

Adam elaborates on his approach in Jews Must Be the Brave Eagle, Not the Sacrificial Canary in the Battle Against Antisemitism. To combat Jew hatred, we must stop being reactive and look over the horizon to detect threats before they occur. The future of America, American Jewry, and the civilized world order depends on how we reposition ourselves to win this fight.
Many people in our community need help during these challenging times. Under Gila’s leadership, Stand By Me continues to provide care and services to Israeli-American cancer patients and their families in Los Angeles. They are making sure that no one in our community faces cancer alone, especially through these isolating times. For ways to get involved, please visit their website.
This month we feature ISRAEL-is, a grassroots organization whose mission is to change Israel’s perception around the world by empowering young Israelis with the skills and opportunities to create meaningful interactions with international backpackers during their trips abroad. 

With sincere love and admiration for the State of Israel and the Jewish people,
Gila and Adam Milstein
We Must Act Now to Fight Antisemitism
Adam Milstein's article was first published in Hadassah Magazine's July 2020 issue.
"We know antisemitism is on the rise, and it is likely to get much worse. A perfect storm of circumstances is significantly increasing the danger. Jew-haters are taking advantage of the cracks in our society. They amplify their hateful rhetoric on mainstream media and social media and incite violence toward our communities in frightening ways without suffering any consequences.
Now is the time to protect our loved ones and our communities and safeguard American values."
Stand By Me
"With a warm heart and open arms, Stand By Me is the extended family in support of its brothers and sisters on their road to recovery."

Jews Must Be the Brave Eagle, Not the Sacrificial Canary in the Battle Against Antisemitism
Adam Milstein's article was first published in Newsweek on July 20, 2020.
"We, the Jews, are not an expendable alarm system for others and should not see ourselves as such. If we hope to survive and thrive, we cannot afford to be defenseless. We must change our approach to go on the offensive and join other groups in the fight against the dangers all Americans face, rather than hold onto the mantle of victimhood, vainly hoping others will fight for us."

ISRAEL-is is an apolitical, grassroots, non-governmental organization founded in 2017 by three Israel Defense Forces (IDF) officers who served in an elite IDF unit. After traveling abroad and returning to Israel, they realized the untapped potential of Israeli travelers to better global perceptions of Israel.
ISRAEL-is' mission is to improve Israel’s image internationally. The organization empowers young travelers with the knowledge, tools, and interpersonal communication skills to create more meaningful interactions with other international backpackers that challenge misconceptions about Israel.
ISRAEL-is' vision is to fundamentally transform the fabric of Israeli society over time so that individuals embrace their roles as ambassadors for Israel, proudly sharing their Israel stories and making an impact on their international peers who may be tomorrow’s leaders.
ISRAEL-is relies solely on donations. They would greatly appreciate your support to expand their activities and train more IDF veterans to become ambassadors of Israel.
MFF is proud to support ISRAEL-is.
