Stand Against Antisemitism
SAVE THE DATE: January 27, 2022
In the months that have followed since the sharp increase in antisemitism across this country and elsewhere around the world, the Jewish Federation and Jewish Foundation of Nashville and Middle Tennessee has responded on multiple fronts. One of our key initiatives in this regard is to educate the broader, general community. Please save the date to join us for International Holocaust Remembrance Day on Thursday, January 27, 2022, in downtown Nashville at 5:00 pm. This gathering is to unite Tennesseans in the fight against the resurgence of antisemitism in our own time. Like the Righteous Among the Nations during the Holocaust, we are asking our non-Jewish neighbors to stand up and speak out against hate. Attendees will be empowered to make a difference by committing to educating themselves about antisemitism, personally avoid using antisemitic language/memes/tropes, and to speak out when they hear others doing so. This non-partisan event will focus on the evils of antisemitism and how learning from the past can protect the future for all of us. Invited speakers will include elected officials, civic/business/academic leaders, and special guests.
