Leadership Circle

Through your membership, you will be supporting ADC’s activities:

Fighting anti-Semitism

The four pillars of our anti-Semitism Prevention Project are:

  • Click Against Hate – an education program to skill Jewish Year 9 & 10 students to recognise and respond to antisemitism online. Students need to see responding to antisemitism as “their job” and to have the skills and confidence to tackle offensive material in real time;
  • Multifaith Future Leaders Program – a program aimed at potential leaders from a range of religious communities to give them three core experiences:  leadership training in a multifaith environment; interfaith education and the opportunity for social connection;
  • Education – the ADC produces a suite of e-newsletters, reports and media releases to ensure the public understands anti- Semitism. We also provide speakers to schools and community organisations, we participate in multicultural forums and maintain an online information service through our website;
  • Campus anti-Semitism – Students, faculty, administrators and campus professionals can turn to the ADC for assistance when dealing with issues such as anti-Semitism and anti-Israel sentiment on campus.  Additionally, the ADC and AUJS have created an on-line system to report anti-Semitic issues experienced on campus. Since many students do not feel comfortable reporting such incidents to their lecturers or members of faculty, the ADC and AUJS would be the appropriate bodies to deal with such issues.
