In the wake of this past shabbat's horrifying hostage situation in Colleyville, TX, we are reminded of the urgency of dismantling antisemitism. The outpouring of love and support that we as a Jewish community continue to receive from our Muslim neighbors in response is a reminder that Jews don't have to combat antisemitism alone. We are so grateful to have tools and resources at our disposal to unravel — and dismantle — antisemitism with our community.
