Interagency Group Established to Fight Antisemitism

President’s administration attempts to address rising antisemitic sentiment and violence.

The White House has announced the establishment of an inter-agency group created to counter American antisemitism. The group will be led by staff members of the Domestic Policy Council and the National Security Council to streamline and coordinate the efforts of President Biden’s administration to address “antisemitism, Islamophobia, and related forms of bias and discrimination within the United States.”

“The President has tasked the inter-agency group, as its first order of business, to develop a national strategy to counter antisemitism,” White House Press Secretary Jean-Pierre stated. “All Americans should forcefully reject antisemitism – including Holocaust denial – wherever it exists.”

In the last year, the Anti-Defamation League documented the largest number of antisemitic crimes in the U.S. since the League was established 40 years ago. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president and his administration as they endeavor to address rising antisemitism.
  • For the members of the interagency group as they develop national strategies to counter antisemitic rhetoric and activity.
  • For American Jews who are currently being impacted or harmed by antisemitism.
