What is the Jewish Resistance?
What comes to mind might be the Warsaw Ghetto uprising or the partisan movements of the second World War. In 2017, the Resistance is proceeded by a # hashtag, with an altogether different meaning.
Immediately after the election of President Trump a movement to delegitimize his presidency was begun, led by groups of peoples who were already trained in community organizing. Jewish activists, in particular, initiated a movement to label Trump and his advisor, Steve Bannon as racist, alt-right and the source of a sharp increase in anti-Semitic activity. We will report on the progress of this false narrative aimed at influencing thought and action for tomorrow's Young Jewish Leadership.
