In honor of the Three Weeks and to combat the rise in antisemitism, we launched a project called “Meet A Jew From a Different Background Than You.” The best way to remedy the cause of our exile, sin’as chinam (baseless hatred), is by reaching for its opposing force – love and unity. We matched our followers up with another awesome Jew, not exactly like them, to shmooze with via Zoom. We believe that by lighting this spark of achdus (unity), we will be able to say not only have we broken the ice but melted it too. We may be social distancing now, but we hope this video proves that we can virtually strengthen our bonds with our people.
