Know your rights!

Justin Asher, Chairperson of Generation Next, addresses Herzlia Grade 11s

Our Generation Next subcommittee recently rolled out its ‘Know Your Rights’ campaign to Herzlia High School and CT Torah High Grade 11 and 12 students.

Whether you are studying, working or taking a gap year next year, it is crucial that you know your rights, the harms you may experience and the remedies available to you.

Cape SAJBD’s Marketing and Legal Officer Tyla Dallas presented the Know Your Rights on campus booklet, which equips students with skills to respond effectively and appropriately to the variety of ways in which antisemitism may manifest, from insensitive or biased comments to hate-motivated incidents. Although targeted to campus life, its ‘Enforcement Process’ and ‘Speak Up Strategies’ can be used to confront incidents that might occur in the workplace or any other public space.

“Where you experience antisemitism or anti-Jewish hate speech, prejudice, vandalism or other incidents, the Cape South African Jewish Board of Deputies (Cape SAJBD) is here to assist you! We can make a difference in your lives, and we want to be able to protect you,” Tzvi Brivik (Chairperson)
