BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Boston Jewish organizations joined together to launch a new advocacy campaign to raise awareness of local antisemitism.
The 'Face Jewish Hate' mobilization campaign features local Jewish people who tell their own experiences being victimized by antisemitism.
New England Patriots owner, Robert Kraft, is a part of the campaign and said the focus is to raise public awareness about the antisemitism Jewish people in the community face everyday.

"I believe most Americans are good human beings and want to stand up and make sure everyone is treated the same," Kraft said. "I love this country and we have to keep it strong and vibrant and allow to live their life and be respectful of their neighbors."
Jewish people make up 2.4% of the United States population, but are the victims of 55% of religion based hate crimes, Kraft said.
