How You Can Stand Up to Hatred in the Palm Beaches and Beyond

We stand with you, as well as our partners in law enforcement, government and other faiths, to combat incidents of hatred in the Palm Beaches and beyond.

Thank you for joining us to combat antisemitism.  Together, we stand up to hatred through opportunities for you to proudly display our Jewishness. You attend community events and celebrate Jewish holidays. And you participate in volunteer projects that improve our entire community.

Federation has many resources to help you engage and advocate on behalf of the Jewish people:

  • If you see or hear of a hate incident, please report it to jewishpb.org/incidentreporting.
  • Equip yourself to identify and call out hatred by requesting our Antisemitism Today and Decoding the Narrative programs be brought to your social or civic club. More than 1,400 people already have participated in these programs, which are presented by Federation’s Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC). Email josephine.gon@jewishpalmbeach.org to make arrangements.
  • The Palm Beach Center to Combat Antisemitism & Hatred expands and amplifies Federation’s longstanding role addressing antisemitism by combining legislative muscle and community security initiatives with leadership and outreach programs.
  • Share social media posts about your commitment to standing up to hatred. Make sure to use the blue square emoji, 🟦, a symbol of a global effort to combat the rise of antisemitism. We are proudly partnering with the Foundation to Combat Antisemitism as part of the blue square/Stand Up to Jewish Hate campaign.
  • Watch Hate Rising, CBS 12’s series in partnership with the USC Shoah Foundation, which delves into the rise of antisemitism across the country and here in our own backyard. Josephine Gon, Vice President of Federation’s JCRC, is featured in interviews throughout the series.
