Letter to the editor,

As we write this, we are deeply disturbed by the rise of antisemitism in our society. It is a cancer that eats away at the very fabric of our communities and threatens the well-being of everyone. This insidious hatred must be opposed by all people of goodwill. Antisemitism has a long and dark history, and it is disheartening to see it rearing its ugly head once again. From hateful rhetoric to violent attacks, Jewish communities are facing a barrage of antisemitic acts that are deeply troubling. It is important to understand that antisemitism is not just an attack on Jewish people, but an attack on the very values that we hold dear as a society. It is a rejection of the principles of equality, tolerance, and respect for diversity that are essential to a healthy and prosperous society.

The rise of antisemitism is a call to action for all of us to oppose and end it. We must stand up against this hatred, and we must do so together. It is not enough to simply condemn antisemitism; we must actively work to eradicate it from our society. This means taking concrete actions to counter antisemitic rhetoric and to protect Jewish communities from violence and harassment. It means educating ourselves and others about the dangers of antisemitism and its historical roots. It means promoting interfaith dialogue and cooperation to build bridges of understanding and respect. We must also recognize that the fight against antisemitism is not just the responsibility of Jewish people, but of all people who value human rights and dignity. It is up to all of us to create a society that is free from hate and discrimination. In the face of rising antisemitism, we cannot afford to remain silent. We must speak out loudly and clearly against this hatred, and we must work tirelessly to build a world that is just, equitable, and inclusive for all.

Antisemitism must be attacked whenever it occurs in whatever firm it takes.

A lawsuit on behalf of a conservative Jewish journalist filed by us for damages as the result of the journalist being refused service at a Williamsburg Brooklyn bar because of his Zionist views is an example of how we as lawyers can attack antisemitism.
