Listen to the minority leader discuss tikkun olam and how his name, “Schumer” comes from “shomer”—and thus how he identifies as a guardian or watchman. Sen. Schumer says, "I try to be both—a shomer Y'israel, to help Israel, and a shomer here at home—to help those who need help and keep America strong.”
B'nai B'rith has launched the Zero.Dot.Two Initiative (#0dot2) ahead of its 175th anniversary to discuss ideas around Jewish identity, to educate social media users about Judaism as a proactive way to combat anti-Semitism and to promote the Jewish connection to the State of Israel through the voices of many online influencers. With approximately 14.4 million Jewish individuals alive today Jews are 0.2 percent of global citizens.
