As part of Federaton's ongoing commitment to supporting a secure Jewish community, representatives from our congregations and Jewish organizations recently attended a special briefing with representatives from the FBI Civil Rights Division the MA State Police Anti-terrorism Unit to learn more about their work supporting communities, share our concerns and learn about our rights in relation to hate crimes and civil rights violations.
In addition, the Anti-Defamation League New England (ADL) and the Jewish Federation of the Berkshires have collaborated to create an informative resource guide to effectively support our community members in reporting antisemitic or bias incidents to the ADL. Please share this guide widely and report incidents on this website.
If you experience or witness an incident of antisemitism, please report it using the link above and let the Federation know as well.
We all have a responsibility to report and respond to antisemitism or bias when we see it. Doing this can make our community safer, empower us, and assist law enforcement investigations.
