Jews Have Allies

We made this site as a place we Jews can go to remind ourselves that we have allies.

The recent rise in antisemitism has been especially hard on us Jews, making us feel isolated, targeted, and vulnerable.

It is also true that we are both resilient and have strong allies who have our backs and are ready to stand up for our safety, dignity, and belonging.

Our Jewish tradition invites us to acknowledge just how fragile and uncertain we remain even when there is also a lot to be grateful for. We appreciate this push to acknowledge the humbling paradox we live within on a daily basis - that while there is brokenness and pain and suffering, we are building something whole and full and have more support than we can sometimes tell.
