Anti-Semitism kills. Racism kills. Islamophobia kills. Homophobia kills. Bigotry kills.
Each of these forms of bias uproots lives, devastates families, and destroys dreams. They kill violently and they kill painfully. Most shockingly of all, they kill indiscriminately.
As a Jewish community, we fight anti-Semitism not only to protect ourselves, and not only to protect the very soul of our democratic society, but to protect the lives of every person who lives among us and alongside us, Jew and non-Jew.
