Advocate For Israel: Recount An Anti-Semitic Incident You Experienced

I experienced anti-Semitism in my junior year of college. I attended a "date" auction with several of my best friends. We were competing to get the best prizes from other groups who were there. The girl sitting next to me told me I should spend some of "my jew money" so that we could win. Regrettably, I was stunned in the moment and unable to respond appropriately. I brought the issue to the diversity and inclusion board of my sorority (of which this girl was also a part), and we later had an event that addressed her problematic remark, without blaming her exactly.
