As leaders of the Lappin Foundation’s Teen Antisemitism Task Force, we answered the call more than a year ago to do something about the rise in antisemitism at our schools and in our communities.
In November 2020, Lucy and Sofia co-founded the Lappin Foundation Teen Antisemitism Task Force, which is an interfaith, multiracial group of nearly forty teens around Greater Boston and beyond. We aim to broaden the fight against antisemitism by educating our peers and ourselves through engaging projects and knowledgeable speakers. We felt that only the Jewish community was engaged in efforts against antisemitism, and we wanted to change that. As Lucy and Sofia head off to college, the torch is being passed to Arielle and Teddy as they take on their role of co-chairing the Teen Antisemitism Task Force.
If you or anyone you know is a teen interested in joining the fight against antisemitism, please reach out to Debbie Coltin (email@example.com).
The time is now to stand up and speak out against the injustices that persist in our communities.
