Standing Strong Together Against Hate


Growing antisemitism is of paramount concern to the Jewish community. In its 2022 Audit of Antisemitic Incidents, ADL recorded 3,697 antisemitic incidents in the U.S., a 36 percent increase from 2021 and by far the highest on record since the audit began in 1979.

The Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle works in a number of different capacities to address this issue, including creating a community-wide consensus statement on antisemitism.

Recognizing Antisemitism

Stand Up 

  • Seek to stop antisemitism in its tracks by swiftly, forcefully, and publicly condemning acts of antisemitism.
  • If you believe someone has said or done something antisemitic and doesn’t understand, help them to understand the impact of their words.
  • When you see antisemitic vandalism, harassment, intimidation, or violence, speak up. In consultation with the victim, and with their consent, report it directly to the police, the ADL, SAFE Washington, or a trusted leader within your community who will ensure the incident is reported.
  • If you don’t know if something is antisemitic, get in touch with the Anti-Defamation League.


  • Contact your elected officials. Share this community statement with them. Tell them antisemitism is a growing concern and that you’d like them to make understanding and addressing growing antisemitism a priority.
  • Contact the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle to learn how you can support their advocacy.

Show Up

  • For Holocaust Remembrance Day Events.
  • For community solidarity gatherings.
  • For other communities that experience hate crimes and to build enduring relationships with potential allies.
