WATCH: The Second Front conference on antisemitism

Broadcast event: The battle for Israel and the Jewish people

The Second Front - A Jerusalem Post event.

In the wake of the tragic massacre by Hamas terrorists in the south of Israel, sparking a conflict that has reverberated globally, the alarming surge in antisemitic incidents demands urgent attention. 

There was a staggering 500% increase in antisemitic incidents during the first three weeks of the war (October 7-25) that continues to climb.

To confront this pressing issue head-on, The Jerusalem Post spearheaded a broadcast focused on combatting antisemitism and ensuring the security of Jewish communities worldwide. However, recognizing the profound impact of the conflict on individuals and communities, this broadcast extended its scope to encompass the broader landscape of war initiatives and the crucial task of post-war healing and rebuilding.

The Second Front: The battle for Israel and the Jewish people 

The primary goal of this conference was to serve as a dedicated platform for addressing both antisemitism and the multifaceted challenges faced by those affected by the conflict. The spotlight was not only shone on initiatives combating antisemitism but also on efforts dedicated to the mental, emotional, and financial well-being of communities, including children and families, who will continue to grapple with the enduring repercussions long after the war concludes.

This broadcast was a comprehensive exploration of initiatives, insights, and actions that organizations have undertaken to contribute to the healing and reconstruction process.
