Recent years have shown an increase in antisemitism, manifested both through violent acts against Jews and through hate speech in the different media outlets, both by the public and by influencers. Poland, where Jews have lived for more than a 1,000 years, is the best place to send a clear message from about the importance of combating antisemitism. Fighting antisemitism, as well as other forms of hate and discrimination, is crucial for a just society.

To fulfill this purpose we set up a 48 hours Hackathon, aimed at offering technological solutions for combating antisemitism. The HackHate hackathon gathered together entrepreneurs, startups, programmers, designers, young professionals and scholars from different disciplines with the aim of developing viable methods and tools to combat antisemitism.
