SHINE A LIGHT on Antisemitism


We invite you to take action with ADL and a wide coalition of Jewish and non-Jewish organizations, corporations, U.S. Governors and mayors, educators and other leaders this Hanukkah who are alarmed at the levels of antisemitism we are seeing online and in our communities.

We draw inspiration from Hanukkah’s traditions as the Festival of Lights. Together, we can shine a light to dispel the darkness of antisemitism. Together, we can fight the Good Fight and win.

How can you take part?

Let’s continue to #ShineALight and convene conversations so people will better understand anti-Jewish hate and take action to respond. It’s critical to speak up, share facts and show strength against antisemitism.

Shine A Light

You can take action by sharing the #ShineALight video on social media, or by posting messages about fighting antisemitism — write your own, or find plenty of choices in the social toolkit. You can also arrange to have an insightful #ShineALight speaker talk to you and your community. Here are dozens of great speakers you can invite, including ADL leaders.

But don’t stop there — help ensure that we have supporters combating anti-Jewish hatred in:

  • The Workplace: Do you want your workplace to be a strong voice against antisemitism? Share our workplace guide inside your company or organization. It has ways to speak out, get educated and support Jewish employees. For a deeper dive, visit our ‘No Hate At Work’ resource page.
  • The Classroom: ADL is hosting events for hundreds of educators for #ShineALight, including our upcoming webinar for educators on the intersection of antisemitism and sports on 12/20.
  • The Halls of Government: Encourage officials in your area to speak out against antisemitism, to prioritize education against bias and bigotry and engage law enforcement against hate crimes, and to adopt the non-binding International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) Working Definition of Antisemitism.

Want to learn more about getting involved this Hanukkah? Visit our #ShineALight homepage for more about events, resources and ways to speak out against antisemitism at this vital time.

Thank you for all you do as a beacon of light against the darkness of hate.
