We work to create a safe space for individual Jews to share their stories of Jew hatred. Empowering the victims and amplifying their stories into something the community can rally around.

Jews should not be asked to memorize facts about a foreign state in order to engage in Jewish advocacy. Instead, we must work for justice for specific victims and the community at large. Connecting victims to share their stories and building strength through shared narratives is imperative. What does liberation mean to you? What is redemption? How does it feel to stand up and be empowered. Set up a focus session with top Jewish social activists.

EndJewHatred on Saturday Night Live

EndJewHatred on Saturday Night Live

We don’t always watch Saturday Night Live, but when we do, we can expect bigotry and Jew hatred. The “joke” shared by comedian Michael Che about vaccinations in Israel expresses the lowest form of bigotry. It embodies the ignorance that underlies systemic injustice not just against Jews, but against Muslims as well. Since vaccinations are freely offered to Israeli citizens regardless of religion or skin color, Che’s joke implied that Muslims are choosing not to get vaccinated. Michael Che represents the unchecked hatred and aggression that too often seeps into pop culture. We are so tired of dealing with lazy comedy and racist jokes disguised as entertainment. Humor is not funny when it comes at the expense of a minority frequently targeted with physical and emotional violence. It’s not funny when it perpetuates and reinforces wrongful stereotypes that diminish and belittle an entire community of people. It’s not funny when its object is to dehumanize and denigrate people because of their ethnic, cultural and religious identity. And it’s not funny when it’s grounded in racism. Society has moved beyond the time when making fun of people for their innate characteristics or appearance was excusable or acceptable. For far too long, people stood idly by while comedians and social commentators avidly tore down entire groups of people in the guise of humor. No minority was spared, and it’s not worth recalling here all the horrible “jokes” made at the expense of every single minority community. We know them too well. They were used as one of the many tools of systemic discrimination, to keep minorities in their place. Those days are long gone, replaced by a civilized world of social justice. Comedians who relish in singling out minorities and hurting them are dinosaurs on the verge of extinction. Society has changed and they have no place in it. It’s time for NBC to put an end to the disgusting oppression and intolerance it has allowed in the guise of humor, and terminate Michael Che and the writers and other staff members who allowed his hurtful words on air. It’s time for NBC to embrace social justice for minorities and #EndJewHatred.
