Fighting Antisemitism Resource Page

Right now our focus is on fighting antisemitism on campus, calling out hate, and standing up for Jewish students. The attacks against Jews in Israel are not complicated to understand. This is not about “good people, or bad people, on both sides.” There can be no justification for what happened on Oct. 7. We are providing needed resources for students, parents, and alumni to access. These come from industry leaders, world renowned educators, and more. Feel free to use these and share with others. To submit a resources, please email See our Fighting Antisemitism plan.

What Matters Now to Micah Goodman: Vow to stand with Israel when it fires back
Welcome to What Matters Now, a weekly podcast exploration into one key issue shaping Israel and the Jewish World — right now. Israel is at war. And, while we are fighting on our southern, and increasingly, our northern borders, one of the biggest battles is global — for the hearts and minds of those who could support Israel in this time of need. Because the battle is international, it’s not only about the Palestinians versus the Israelis. It goes far beyond that. “Hamas is just a forefront of Iran. It’s one large, organic monster. So we weren’t attacked by the local militia, we were attacked by the Persian Empire,” according to Dr. Micah Goodman. The author of influential works such as “Catch-67” has appeared on What Matters Now in the past, speaking on politics and on the judicial overhaul. But on a morning in which we both received terrible news of fallen loved ones, we had a raw and very real conversation in which Goodman makes a unique plea for help. In this week of terrible tragedy, we ask Dr. Micah Goodman, what matters now. What Matters Now podcasts are available for download on iTunes, TuneIn, Pocket Casts, Stitcher, PlayerFM or wherever you get your podcasts.
