The rise in antisemitism and hate speech on Twitter in recent months has been deeply concerning to us as Jews. Though social media platforms in general must do more to combat hate, Twitter has a particular responsibility to act in this moment. The URJ is spearheading a Jewish community-wide letter admonishing Elon Musk to take immediate, quantifiable steps toward reducing hate on Twitter.
The letter is open to all Jewish institutions and organizations - international, national, state, provincial, and local. Your congregation's name on the letter will make it stronger, demonstrating the breadth of concern about antisemitism on Twitter and amplifying the call for immediate action. We hope you will add your congregation's name and share it with other Jewish institutions in your community. The deadline to join is Friday, January 27, 2023.
