On Nov. 3, the U.S. House of Representatives unanimously passed H. Res. 354 (full text) urging the U.S. government to do more to combat growing anti-Semitism in Europe. The Resolution, in part, encourages the U.S. government to work closely with European governments, law enforcement agencies, the OSCE and EU to "formally recognize, partner, train, and share information with Jewish community security groups to strengthen preparedness, prevention, mitigation,
and response related to anti-Semitic attacks and to support related research initiatives." The Resolution's sponsor, New Jersey Rep. Chris Smith, issued a press release providing further background.
