Young Adult: Antisemitism, Israel Advocacy & Campus Life

There is a broadening and alarming gap between our community’s cherished values and those our youth are exposed to on social media, in academia, politics, entertainment, and society at large.  We established the SCA OnCampus Division to help prepare our young adults in High School for the collision with the dangerous ideas, values and norms that is inevitable with living, studying, and working in the world. Once they are post high school, we support them with educational, social, and religious programming to keep them connected to their values through the post high school phase on into adulthood.

Working together with community schools, affiliates, Rabbis, and national resource partners we equip them with the tools to navigate the issues of:

    • Antisemitism on Campus & Beyond
    • Israel Advocacy
    • Strengthening Sephardic/Jewish Pride and Identity
    • Social Media Literacy
    • Critical Thinking Skills
    • Cancel Culture, Conspiracy Theories, and the “Woke” agenda
    • The disturbing values being normalized and promoted by society—especially those directed at increasingly younger people. 

"How Well Do You Know Israel?!"

"How Well Do You Know Israel?!" is a weekly series of multiple choice questions about Israel written by Mrs. Esther Tokayer, Associate Principal of Magen David Yeshivah Joe & Celia Esses High School. The questions range from the history of the land to current events, to advocacy tips and fun facts -- and everything in between. Each week's quiz ends off with an open-ended question that you can share on your Shabbat table to help facilitate a dynamic conversation about our homeland.

Antisemitsm, Explained

As part of our commitment to educating and preparing young adults to combat antisemitism, the SCA has co-sponsored Antisemitism, Explained, a new series produced by media company OpenDor Media. Antisemitism, Explained is a six-part video series that digs into the historical roots of antisemitism and how it affects Jewish identity and global events. Written by award-winning journalist Yair Rosenberg, the series explores how to identify antisemitic threats that are outside our control, and inspires the confidence to stand up against them.
