International Struggle Against Anti-Semitism Day
The Department for Countering Anti Semitism is sponsoring an International Struggle Against Anti-Semitism Day. The day is to coincide with International Holocaust Remembrance Day on January 27th.
Eitan Ori Behar, director of the World Zionist Organization's Center for Diaspora Communications told Arutz Sheva news, "volunteers from all over the world combat bigotry online by using new media such as Facebook and the new iZionist.org website. Our team of young volunteers encourages people to report hateful online content, to write talkbacks and to translate content into different languages."
Yaakov Hagoel, the head of the World Zionist Organization's Department for Activities in Israel and Countering Anti-Semitism said "We will continue fighting this disease all over the world. We are sponsoring conferences and seminars for our network of activists to raise awareness."
