(JNS) The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) unanimously passed a resolution that denounced anti-Semitism and anti-Israeli rhetoric, the Los Angeles Daily News reported.

The resolution, which was passed on July 13th, also called on the district to update its Jewish history and culture curriculum and instructional materials, and provide more training to staff about how to respond to anti-Semitic speech and incidents.

“The Board of Education denounces the rise in anti-Semitic, anti-Jewish and anti-Israeli rhetoric, and hate-motivated crimes and incidents that denigrate Jewish students and staff in the communities served by LAUSD in order for every LAUSD campus and office to be a safe and welcoming environment for all students, staff and families,” the resolution stated.

Jeffrey Abrams, Los Angeles regional director of the Anti-Defamation League, said it will “help create a productive and safe environment for Jewish students, and all students and families.”
