Today with rising antisemitism in Canada and globally, with Holocaust ignorance and even Holocaust Denial at high levels among people in certain age groups and in some communities, with criticism of Israel going far and beyond mere policy disagreements to calls for her destruction, and false claims seeking to totally exclude and delegitimize the nation state of the Jewish people, there is a need for Jews and non-Jews to consider how to counteract the threats and stop the danger, to protect the Jewish communities and preserve our democracy and freedoms.

 

CAEF asks:  What is Jewish Heritage; what must be taught? How does education counter antisemitism? What has been the result of all efforts to date? What does being philo-semitic or proto-Judaic mean? How can we do what Elan Carr, the US Special Envoy to monitor and combat antisemitism recommends—not to stop at fighting antisemitism but to help nations love their Jews! How does Israel fit into the teaching of Jewish Heritage?
