A Message on Penn Medicine’s Ongoing Response to Antisemitism and Other Forms of Hate

December 07, 2023

Across our community, people are grappling with intense, heightened emotions as we witness painful words and activities that threaten, harass, and intimidate individuals among our colleagues, patients, families, and friends. Like you, we are alarmed and devastated each time we hear about an incident of antisemitism, Islamophobia, or hate in any form. The fear and traumatic effects are acute but can also be long-lasting.
