My Facebook feed is filled with posts about fighting anti-Semitism:

"We must stand together in the face of rising anti-Semitism in all its forms. The shooters in Pittsburgh and Poway didn't care whether their victims were Reform or Orthodox, Republican or Democrat."

"Unfortunately, we’re living in an era where the need for a strong and clear condemnation of anti-Semitism has become acute. We are in the midst of a wave of anti-Semitism seen both here in the United States and all over the world."

"Jews today are the most targeted religious group in the United States for hate crimes, according to the data compiled by the FBI. We need to be able to acknowledge that clearly and directly and that’s what this resolution does."

"For this hatred, still very much prevalent today, to end, we need clear and strong leadership."

Ladies and gentlemen, I have bad news for you: anti-Semitism will never end!

Throughout the generations, Jews residing in Galut (Diaspora) were relatively protected from anti-Semitism and kept alive as a result of Israel's "Iron Dome" -- God's 'Shechina' (Divine Presence).

But in 1948, that all changed. God decided it was time for Him, and all Jews, to finally come home to the Land of Israel: "Blessed are You, Hashem, Who returns His Divine Presence to Zion".

No matter how many laws and resolutions are passed, anti-Semitism will continue to increase. 

Israel's "Iron Dome", which protected us in Galut, is quickly shifting to a better location. Maybe you should also?
