During the past year, there has been a historically high amount of anti-semitic attacks in the United States. From the beginning of time, when nations have tried to mock us and destroy us, we get stronger and prouder.
This past Monday, AJC Global ran an initiative against anti-semitism. January 6th was named #JewishAndProud Day. They encouraged Jews to use the hashtag, wear something Jewish, post a pic with a #JewishAndProud sign, or share why you're proud of.
Jews from all over the world proudly wore their yamakas and posted their pics on social media. They were not afraid. They did not shy away from their roots. They wore yamakas to show exactly who they were.
#JewishAndProud in an iKIPPAH
Our social media was pinging on Monday with @iKIPPAH tags. #JewishAndProud in an @iKIPPAH, the comments announced. Nothing makes us "schep" more "nachas" than being able to support Jews in showing their Jewish pride -- and looking really good in the process!
