PLANO, Texas – February 2, 2022 – Dallas NCSY and it's Jewish Student Union is inviting all parents and teens to join together for the continued “Are Jew Ready” series that has discussed antisemitism and how to combat it. The event is co-presented by StandWithUs, a San Diego-based Israel advocacy organization, and the Dallas Area Torah Association (DATA), a local Jewish outreach organization.
Part 1, titled Israel 101, was held on Sunday, January 30. The presentation featured Sharon Basch, the Regional High School Coordinator from StandWithUs. Rabbi Yogi Robkin from DATA will be presenting part 2 of the series being held on February 6.
Following the recent events in Colleyville, Texas, it is necessary again to come together and discuss these disturbing events that connect all Jews affected by the continuous hatred. The “Are Jew Ready” series was developed to provide teens and parents with facts and actionable tools necessary to combat antisemitism. Attendees will learn about confronting antisemitism on college campuses and everywhere hatred arises.
Dallas NCSY along with it's Jewish Student Union engages 100's of teens with programs like this and with after-school clubs on high school campuses throughout the Dallas metroplex with opportunities to socialize, travel, have fun and volunteer with the local community. All this is made possible with support, in part by the Jewish Federation of Greater Dallas.
Rabbi Michel Lomner and Chana Ben-Abraham supervise the program. For more information about this program or to donate to Dallas NCSY, visit southwest.ncsy.org/donate.
