U.S. special envoy to combat anti-Semitism Elan Carr and human-rights advocate Natan Sharansky are scheduled to headline an online event to discuss solutions to combat anti-Semitism.

The event will be hosted by the Combat Anti-Semitism Movement, which will announce the winner of its first-round contest for creative and engaging solutions to combat anti-Semitism. The event was initially scheduled to take place at the National Museum of American Jewish History in Philadelphia, but was rescheduled due to concerns about the coronavirus.

The 75-minute discussion will include a discussion on insights to fight anti-Semitism, including how the Soviet Jewry movement can influence efforts today.

In December 2019, the Combat Anti-Semitism Movement selected the winners of its Venture Creative Contest, in partnership with CAMERA, AISH, Artist4Israel, Tikvah Fund, JNS, ICC, American Sephardic Federation and the Galila Foundation.  The first round of the contest aimed to crowd-source new solutions to help fight anti-Semitism.

More than 140 individuals and organizations submitted proposals for the contest, building a creative hub to fight anti-Semitism. On Sunday, 27 recipients will receive grants from the Combat Anti-Semitism Movement with the total amount of $100,000, including the winner of the Natan Sharansky award.

The online discussion will take place at 1:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Sunday, March 15.

Support Jewish Journalism
with 2020 Vision

One of the most intriguing stories of the sudden Coronavirus crisis is the role of the internet. With individuals forced into home quarantine, most are turning further online for information, education and social interaction.

JNS's influence and readership are growing exponentially, and our positioning sets us apart. Most Jewish media are advocating increasingly biased progressive political and social agendas. JNS is providing more and more readers with a welcome alternative and an ideological home.

During this crisis, JNS continues working overtime. We are being relied upon to tell the story of this crisis as it affects Israel and the global Jewish community, and explain the extraordinary political developments taking place in parallel.

Our ability to thrive in 2020 and beyond depends on the generosity of committed readers and supporters. Monthly donations in particular go a long way in helping us sustain our operations. We greatly appreciate any contributions you can make during these challenging times. We thank you for your ongoing support and wish you blessings for good health and peace of mind.
