Join Hadassah's Efforts to Combat Anti-Semitism

In the battle against growing anti-Semitism, comprehensive Holocaust education is crucial. Hadassah helped mobilize support from over 300 organizations for the Never Again Education Act. And, thanks to your advocacy, we've secured over a dozen congressional cosponsors in the past two weeks alone. The bipartisan Never Again Education Act now has 75 cosponsors! Call or write your Representatives in support of this key legislation, which will improve and expand access to Holocaust education, and help spread the word.


Join us May 6 at 8 PM EDT for an exclusive webinar conversation and Q & A with acclaimed historian and author Deborah Lipstadt on “Anti-Semitism Here and Now,” moderated by Hadassah National President Ellen Hershkin. There is an option to join by phone only. Don't miss this chance to better understand the recent rise in anti-Semitism. It's free.

Stand with Israel against Delegitimization

In February, the Senate passed the Strengthening America's Security in the Middle East Act of 2019, including a section to support states in combating the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) Movement. The House of Representatives introduced a companion bill, HR 336, and efforts are underway to bring this to a vote soon. Use your voice to contact your legislators today.

Looking for another way to show your support for Israel? The House and Senate are both considering resolutions to unequivocally condemn the delegitimization of Israel and the BDS movement. Show your legislators that you oppose BDS and that you will not tolerate efforts to deny Israel’s right to exist.
