The following resources have been selected in tandem with and growing out of our Jewish Futures Conference 2019, Pride and Prejudice: Jewish Education's Battle Amid Growing Anti-Semitism. Further down this webpage, you'll find several Featured Resources that we will rotate from the full collection which we hope you will "Access and Explore" immediately below. This is a dynamic and changing resource guide that is designed to point you towards some of the significant and helpful resources that we believe you may find valuable.

One of many topic areas, this one has 112 resources and “finds connections between historic debates over religious liberty and contemporary global tensions over faith, identity, citizenship, and immigration.

שנאת חנם Sinat Chinam (Causeless Hatred): A Resource Guide for Rabbis & Others on Antisemitism | American Jewish Committee
(from the introduction) “...just as we see that antisemitism can come from many places, we also see all around us allies ready to join us in fighting it. Many of us are already working to build coalitions and communities of conscience, to join forces with other houses of worship, and clergy across all faiths. We must continue to do so, of course, not only to oppose antisemitism and all forms of bigotry but in order to affirm positively what we all stand for as Americans—democracy and pluralism: We are all Americans; we all want to practice mutual respect and advance mutual understanding; and we all want to be supported and protected in this process.
