One of the great characteristics of the human spirit is courage. Courage is the stuff of life that adds meaning and significance to our human existence. Albert Camus, the French writer who joined the resistance against the Nazi’s echoed this sentiment when he said, “If men cannot always make history have a meaning, they can always act so that their own lives have.” By accepting the challenge not to be a bystander in the face of growing antisemitism, you honor the memories of the victims of the Holocaust. Defending Jewish people today is an act of remembrance of the past victims of the horrors of antisemitism.
Israel Team’s new book, The Casualty of Contempt – a book filled with epic and courageous stories and essays by sixteen different authors will inform you of the heart wrenching fact that we are seeing in America the same kinds of anti-Jewish rumblings and violence evident in Europe prior to and during the Holocaust.
Part of Israel Team’s mission is to educate good people with a keen awareness of history so they will be ready to challenge the scourge of antisemitism as it blatantly attempts to become mainstream in our generation.
