The primary goal of this task force is to respond to local antisemitic incidents and to provide the community at large with materials and programs to understand Jewish traditions and reduce antisemitic attitudes. A secondary goal is to educate about antisemitism within the context of other forms of racism and bigotry, and to act in solidarity and cooperation with other local groups targeted by any form of hatred.

The age-old custom of remembering the souls of the departed and contributing to charity in their memory is embedded in the fundamental Jewish belief in the everlastingness of the soul. Adonai treats our prayer and our charity as if the deceased gave it. For if not for them, the noble act would not have taken place.
