Sigma Delta Tau is appalled by the recent rise in anti-Semitism directed towards the Jewish community, threats to Jewish organizations and destruction of Jewish cemeteries across our country. We are strongly opposed to these outbursts of anti-Semitism, and all violent forms of racism being faced in dozens of communities. As an organization founded by seven empowered Jewish women with thousands of Jewish collegiate and alumnae members, these threats of aggression are especially saddening. We are truly thankful that sisters who work for Jewish organizations and at Jewish Community Centers have not been harmed.
Sigma Delta Tau is firmly committed to ensuring that tolerance and acceptance is practiced on campuses and in our communities. We encourage our members to be leaders to help break down stereotypes and stop ignorance.
