IT COULD HAPPEN HERE 
Join us for an important conversation with Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO and National Director, ADL, and author of It Could Happen Here, a bracing primer on how we – as individuals, as organizations, and as a society – can strike back against antisemitism and hate. Jonathan will speak with Rabbi Howard Stecker of Temple Israel of Great Neck about the challenges and responsibilities that face us at this critical time.

THE EQUALITY ACT
Keshet and its partners are mobilizing Jewish communities in support of the Equality Act. The Equality Act is proposed federal legislation that would establish non-discrimination protections for LGBTQ Americans. Congress needs to hear from us that we want the Equality Act passed and sent to President Biden who has promised to sign it.

Go to keshetonline.org/equalityact and use the interactive form to quickly send an email/tweet a message to your senators and request stamped postcard packs from Keshet that you can mail to your senators in Congress.
