Is the recent rise in anti-Semitism something to worry about?
Absolutely, it's something to worry about. We have to know that there is a fundamental reason. It's because Hakadosh Baruch Hu is worrying about us. Vayeit Yisroel mei'uluv, Yisroel has to turn away from Eisav. We are too much involved in Gentile ideas, and it's necessary to erect a wall, and that wall is anti-Semitism. Always it happens again and again. When Jews start getting lost among gentiles, then it's time that the Gentiles have to get busy making a wall to prevent that.
And the first reaction to anti-Semitism has to be, not to contribute to the Simon Wiesenthal Center, or other organizations that combat anti-Semitism – no, no. In most cases they cause anti-Semitism.
The way to combat anti-Semitism is to have more yeshivos, where children will be taken in for less tuition. Tuition should be able to be very low: yeshivos should be so prosperous that they can afford to take in children almost for nothing, that's the ideal.
And so the Jewish child in a yeshiva, would be the one that fights against anti-Semitism in the most efficient manner
