What Does It Mean To Be Jewish Today?

I have just returned from Washington where I spoke at the Israeli American Council on anti-Semitism.

In light of the rise in anti-Semitism all over the world, we are offering a free online course, “What Does It Mean To Be Jewish Today?”, to explain why anti-Semitism is spreading so quickly, its root cause and solution. This will be a free 10-Lesson live course that will begin this coming Tuesday, November 18, 2014, at 8:00PM EST. The instructor for the live course will be Chaim Ratz, my official translator for over 10 years. Jews and non–Jews are welcome. 
The goal is to share knowledge about the role of the Jewish people, and raise awareness to the causes of anti-Semitism as a means to prevent further escalation in anti-Semitic trends. The course's lesson outline is based on the chapter outline of my book, Like A Bundle of Reeds: Why Unity and Mutual Guarantee Are Today's Call of the Hour, which is provided free upon sign-up to enable the book's ideas and messages to take on a practical context in the participant’s life. Participants will have a platform for asking questions and receiving answers in real time. They will also have the opportunity to join a community focused on these topics.
The online course is one of many educational products created as part of our Bundle of Reeds project. In addition to access to the eBook version of my most recent book, Like A Bundle of Reeds, we offer a series of booklets that were published when anti-Semitic crimes and threats increased exponentially earlier this year; two infographics showing the sharp rise of anti-Semitism since 2013; and Like A Bundle of Reeds TV series broadcast on JLTV.
The course is being provided by the ARI Institute, which is working to enhance unity and solidarity among individuals and nations, in congruence with the current, interconnected reality. With the world at a crossroads, we are committed to promoting a proactive and positive approach, which demonstrates how humanity has a unique opportunity to achieve global transformation in a peaceful and pleasant manner.
