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.
Kol Chadash provides practical help to individuals, families and neighbors in the wake of antisemitism, bias, or other harms. They fill a needed gap with support and peer advocacy for individuals and their families who have experienced overt antisemitism or are navigating less obvious microaggressions or bias at school, at work, or in the community. To learn more about Kol Chadash or ask for support, reach out to Orin Reynolds, Crime Victim Advocate, at ProgramCoordinator@khnseattle.org, 206.468.1096.
