Integrity First for America (IFA) 2020 Seder Supplement
This short resource gives people the tools to discuss rising anti-Semitism, racism, and white supremacy at their seder table (whether it’s virtual or in person). In particular, it includes new context on how white supremacists and other extremists are exploiting this pandemic to spread disinformation, hate, and terror – including reports this weekend that they planned to use the virus as a bioweapon against Jews and law enforcement.
IFA is the non- profit suing the neo-Nazis and white supremacists in Charlottesville. As you may have read, the corona virus has only exacerbated the crisis of extremism and white supremacy. Anti -Semitic conspiracy theories are on the rise, anti-Asian attacks have increased and the extremists are using hate to peddle disinformation and hate online.
The hope is to provide both individuals and congregations with a straightforward way to discuss these challenges, which can easily be incorporated into their Seders and programming.
