Robert Kraft and Brandeis University Team Up to Respond to Antisemitism

(JNS) The Robert Kraft Family-Brandeis Collaboration on Antisemitism, a multi-tiered effort aimed at combating hatred of Jews, debuted this month. It is a collaboration of the university in Waltham, Mass.; the Kraft family; and the Foundation to Combat Antisemitism.

Kraft, the billionaire CEO of the Kraft Group and owner of the New England Patriots, founded the Foundation to Combat Antisemitism in 2019, the same year the philanthropist was awarded the Genesis Prize.

“The rise of antisemitism and hate targeting Jews across the country is a threat to the Jewish community’s survival and needs strong leadership to combat,” he stated.

The foundation is working “to find innovative ways to educate and empower Jews and non-Jews to stand up to Jewish hate,” said Kraft. “Brandeis is the right partner for this important work, as its founding values are based in a commitment to create a better world.”
