The presentation on “How to Handle Online Antisemitism and Anti-Israel Content Without Leaving Your Home” by Tomer Aldubi was a huge success. The Masa Gap Year Madrichim were thoroughly captivated by the information presented and were eager to learn more about ways to support Gap Year fellows and report online hate speech. The audience also enjoyed the opportunity to produce positive social media content about the Jewish and Israeli experience. I highly recommend FOA workshops!
Your lecture provided the network expert community with valuable insights to the issue of antisemitism, particularly in cyberspace. It was a well-organized, clear, and focused presentation that enhanced our understanding of a topic that we may not encounter in our daily lives. We appreciate this opportunity to acknowledge your organization’s active partnership with the Israeli Internet Association (IIA). In the world we live in, people who take action, effect change, and inspire others are a rare and heartwarming sight. I am convinced that our continued cooperation will contribute to making the internet a safer and more inclusive space, free from violence and antisemitism
During our annual Congress, we invited Tomer Aldubi to hold a session on countering online antisemitism. Finally, our participants found a compentent voice that professionally tackled the issue, bringing innovative solutions together with real life success stories. Through reporting content and lobbying with social media platforms national directors there’s a lot we can achieve and FOA caught the essence of this strategy.
The “Young Cadets Diplomacy and Spokesperson” program trains High School students for spokespeople positions, diplomacy, and young leadership. Fighting Online Antisemitism Organization provides comprehensive information on bullying, racism, and online antisemitism. In fact, the content and knowledge that the trainees acquired from the workshop gave them an excellent understanding and practical means to fight against increasing antisemitism online.
Additionally, during operation “Guardian of the Walls”, Ashdod municipal cooperated with FOA in monitoring antisemitic content on the internet, a trend that increased significantly. As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, the sessions were conducted virtually in a professional manner.
FOA was a great partner for CAEF, bringing important information and skill building to volunteers willing to tackle on line hatred. FOA prepared promotional and teaching material, including how to identify antisemitism and report it on social media platforms. Mentors were available to support the students and further their interest and skills.
Jewish Agency’s “Betzavta” youth leadership program associated with the “Hadera Iron” partnership included a monthly seminar and a lecture by FOA’s Nir Kaplan.
During the week between Holocaust Remembrance Day and Independence Day, which is particularly sensitive time in our country, it was important for us to pause and discuss modern forms of antisemitism, how it manifests online, and what we can do to combat it.
It was a captivating lecture for students and teachers who expressed their opinions, asked questions, and left with many new insights.
