Discourage anti-Jewish behavior
Object to stereotyping
Humbly follow the seven laws and behave morally
Support the existence of Israel
Support religious freedom and sensitivity to others' practices
Be friendly to Jews, encourage your friends to do likewise.
Proselytize/witness/missionize to Jews. We are comitted to Judaism just as you are comitted to your religion.
Date or marry Jews without an intention to convert. The preservation of the Jewish people is strengthened when both partners are Jewish and have a comittment to raise their children Jewish.
Give ham/pork/shellfish to Jews. This shows a lack of respect for commonly known laws regarding Kosher food.
Force a Jew to work from Friday night to Saturday night or on Jewish holidays. This again shows a lack of respect for Jewish holy days.
Tell "JAP" jokes. This perpetuates an derogatory stereotype that has no truth.
