White House Reveals National Strategy for Addressing Antisemitism

This form of domestic terrorism has been on the rise.

President Joe Biden and Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff, the husband of Vice President Kamala Harris, recently unveiled the White House’s national strategy for combating antisemitism. Attacks against Jewish communities and places of worship have risen to record levels in the United States, and this first-of-its-kind national strategy proposes 100 individual actions for President Biden’s administration and Congress to take to address this form of domestic terrorism.

Second Gentleman Emhoff is himself Jewish and was consulted regularly during the formulation of this strategy. “I know the fear. I know the pain. I know the anger that Jews are living with because of this epidemic of hate,” Mr. Emhoff stated. “At its core, antisemitism divides us. It erodes our trust in government institutions and one another. It threatens our democracy while undermining our American values of freedom, community, and decency.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president and second gentleman as they promote the strategy to address antisemitism.
  • For legislators and law enforcement officers as they consider ways to prevent hate crimes.
