Increasingly Jewish teens are confronting expressions of antisemitism in school, social settings, general media, and in the online space. The connection between the Jewish people and Israel often exacerbates and complicates expressions of antisemitism. Their experiences are sadly consistent with a growing and disturbing trend of incidents of antisemitism nationwide, along with growing social polarization and the proliferation of hate crimes. These experiences have caused Jewish teens increased anxiety, distress, fear, and a heightened sense of self, and, in some cases, struggling more generally.
