Dear Friends,

Antisemitism continues to rise and is becoming increasingly aggressive. Jew-haters are defacing synagogues, looting Jewish business, and calling for violent attacks on the Jewish-American community. We must take action to stop this dangerous trajectory. As antisemites use the recent riots and the coronavirus pandemic to unleash new antisemitic campaigns, Jew-hatred is spreading from the fringes to the mainstream. During this period of uncertainty and fear, standing up against hatred and bigotry is more important than ever.

Please read Adam's newest op-ed in the Jerusalem Post, answering the question: is fighting violent antisemitism and saving lives is our Jewish responsibility? And if the answer is "yes," what exactly is our role in preventing the violence inflicted on us, our families and our communities, and what action plans are effective in doing so? And if racism and discrimination against Jews isn’t just our problem but a threat to American values, how do we get the American people to join us in the fight? 
Here is Adam's latest analysis on rising Jew-hatred in America offering concrete solutions to eradicate the new antisemitism perpetuated by the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement in Jewish Policy Center’s inFOCUS Quarterly Spring 2020 issue.
We invite you to learn about Stand By Me .

Is Fighting Violent Antisemitism and Saving Lives our Responsibility?
Adam Milstein's article was first published in the Jerusalem Post on June 1, 2020.
At a time when synagogues are damaged and Jewish businesses are looted, as Jews, what is our role in preventing the violence inflicted on our communities? While the observant communities are the easiest targets within the Jewish community today, too often they are reluctant to join this fight.

Eradicating the Antisemitic BDS Movement
Adam Milstein's article was first published in Jewish Policy Center’s  inFOCUS Quarterly  Spring 2020 issue.
Defeating the BDS movement is the best way for Americans to fight rising anti-Semitism and the hate groups that radicalize and polarize our country today.
There are concrete solutions to reduce the spread of Jew-hatred in America. They focus on eradicating the BDS movement and its influence. If we want to uphold the values that make America a beacon of freedom, justice, and safety for the world, this is how we can lead the way.

UK Lawyers for Israel
UK Lawyers for Israel (UKLFI) was formed by a small group of British attorneys in 2011 after the Reut Institute identified London as the central hub of the network of NGOs seeking the destruction of Israel. UKLFI now counts over 2,500 members and supporters around the world. The organization has made major contributions to the fight against BDS and other anti-Israel and antisemitic activities in the UK and other countries.
UKLFI uses their legal skills to persuade organizations to comply with the law in matters relating to Israel. Their achievements include the closure of 28 fundraising accounts of 14 anti-Israel NGOs with links to terrorism; preventing discrimination against Israelis in international football, judo and badminton ; stopping boycotts by professional associations, universities and city councils ; and getting biased high school textbooks withdrawn. 
MFF is proud to support UKLFI.
