SONC Supports City's Fight Against Antisemitism

Posted on 12/18/2022

SONC, by unanimous vote, adopted the following motion for Council File 22-1241 (International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) / Antisemitism Definition Adoption):

Antisemitic hate crimes recorded by the Anti-Defamation League are at the highest level since tracking began in 1979. Hate crimes in the state of California are at their highest level since 2001, with the highest percentage of religious bias events targeted at the Jewish community. Currently, much anti-semitic rhetoric and hate crimes targeting the Jewish community are disguised as social justice. With this in mind, it is imperative that all Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) programs include the Jewish community as part of their curricula. Furthermore, SONC supports the expansion of all DEI programs to include the Jewish community and foster a greater understanding of the relationship of certain discourse regarding the State of Israel to antisemitism.

The Sherman Oaks Neighborhood Council vehemently opposes anti-semitism in any form whatsoever.
