Anti-Semitic attacks are on the rise in the United States, the United Kingdom, and all over the world. In the UK alone, reported antisemitic incidents were up almost 450%. In the United States, the Anti-Defamation League reports an almost 75% increase.
All of this coming at a time when a recent Claims Conference study finds that over 10 percent "of U.S. Millennial and Gen Z respondents believe Jews caused the Holocaust" and that "a concerning 15% of millennials and Gen Zers thought holding neo-Nazi views was acceptable."
To combat antisemitism, #EddieWalksIt & #MikeyRunsIt are raising money for the Holocaust Memorial & Tolerance Center (HMTC) whose mission is to educate young people about the history of the Holocaust and its lessons. They do this through their wonderful community education program, which bring Holocaust survivors to classrooms, and by bringing young people to their incredible museum.
All donations are tax-deductible and help HMTC continue educating young people about the dangers of antisemitism, racism, bullying and all manifestations of intolerance.
