Sunday at sunset #RoshHashanah the Jewish New Year begins. Over the next two days millions of Jews around the world will spend time with family and friends and pray for the usual things- health, happiness, the ability to provide for one's loved ones... 1/5
With growing global anti-Semitism, many of us will also worry and wonder why in so many places it feels like what Germany must have felt like in the 1930s on the eve of WWII. I know my Holocaust survivor mother said this just the other day. 2/5
Whatever your belief or cause for celebration, will you take a moment over the next days and week to stop to think about how you can personally combat anti-Semitism? Have you laughed at a potentially dangerous joke? Have you not reported a hate tweet? Have you stood idly by 3/5
while someone you know spread/foments hate rhetoric? None of this happens in a vacuum. I hold @twitter @jack responsible in many ways for allowing vile anti-Semitic media to proliferate. But that's why I also think we should seize this opportunity to spread some healing. 4/5
I invite all of you to start a new page next week as we Jews start our new year. Vow not to allow hateful language or jokes to be part of your feed. Speak up if you see something and demand local law enforcement better protect Jewish communities and individuals. Shana Tova! 5/5
