Fight Anti-Semitism with BZD
As many, if not all of you know, anti-Semitism is on the rise throughout the world; the hatred seems to be growing each and every day. Underneath every BZD event, program and trip, we are fighting against this hatred by pulling our community together in hopes to build a future that allows all Jews to live peacefully. In addition, helping to build a strong foundation for all Jews to feel proud of their heritage, and of the state of Israel.
In honor of Israel’s upcoming 72nd birthday, we are hoping to raise $72,000. This is an opportunity to not only bring awareness to anti-Semitism, but it is an opportunity to place your donations in four organizations' hands who work diligently, every day, for a better tomorrow for all Jews.
BZD takes pride in acting as a voice for the Baltimore Jewish community, with nearly 100,000 Jews, Baltimore has one of the highest-ranking Jewish populations in the country. Therefore, your donations will serve as one big check from Baltimore to the fight against anti-Semitism.
Without firstly educating our own Jewish community, and connecting them to the state of Israel we cannot expect the world to be educated on who we are, and to receive true facts.
In many cases, it is not enough to just grow up with Judaism as the religion you were born into enough to fight for it when it is threatened; for many, the extent to which they associate themselves with Judaism and Israel stops whenever and wherever their connection to it was severed. This is where BZD comes in; to provide moments in time for our community to connect, and fall more in love with our homeland and our Judaism.
We ask you to team up with BZD and allow us to continue instilling the necessary components of bringing our community together and educating them, while also showing the world that what comes with having one of the biggest populations of Jews in the country, means we show up and we act.
