United in our shared goal to address and fight the disturbing rise in antisemitism across Massachusetts and the United States, Combined Jewish Philanthropies (CJP) and the Foundation to Combat Antisemitism (FCAS) are close collaborators in this work. CJP is a partner and supporter of the FCAS campaign, Stand Up To Jewish Hate. The Foundation to Combat Antisemitism launched the Stand Up To Jewish Hate Campaign, a mass-media campaign highlighting the modern-day hatred Jews face in the United States and empowering those outside the Jewish community to serve as upstanders against antisemitism. As part of the campaign, we encourage you to post and share the Blue Square, an emoji already on your devices, as a simple way to show solidarity with the Jewish community in the face of rising antisemitism in the United States. The Foundation to Combat Antisemitism is proud to partner with CJP in this effort to Stand Up To Jewish Hate in Boston and throughout the United States.
