#JewishandProud & #JewishandProudAlly Solidarity Campaign

Following the increase in anti-Semitic rhetoric and violence both locally and around the world, Upper School students participated in a day of solidarity with the Jewish community on Monday, January 6. The students attended a special assembly coordinated by Dr. White and Ms. Choudhry. "They learned about the historical creation and proliferation of anti-Semitic rhetoric, behavior, and policies, and then divided into small groups in which they discussed what they learned, what they believe, and how they can be allies of Jewish people," said Dr. Duncan. "It was a heart-expanding time for all." Throughout the day, students took pictures with the hashtags #JewishandProud and #JewishandProudAlly, a movement encouraged by Michael Curry, The Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, as coordinated by the American Jewish Committee (AJC). Cathedral will continue its commitment to honoring religious diversity by working in solidarity with communities of all faiths and serving as upstanders against all forms of discrimination and persecution.
