First rule: Cut out the drama
Don’t listen to the news and, even more so, don’t watch it. It promotes hype to get you addicted to it. Avoid it. It’s bad for your health. Don’t look at clips of people getting killed or crying. It’s poison. You don’t need it.
Then, read the news. Preferably at first, only headlines that get you to decide if you want the details. Don’t act on your FOMO (fear of missing out). Some things you need like a hole in the head. Use your brain. You know what kind of details upset you for no profit. Ignore such news.
Then, learn each outlet’s bias. If Ha’aretz screams Zionists are filthy Jews, ignore it. It’s their mantra. But if it writes BDS Jews hate Jews, possibly read it. If the JPost screams BDS Jews hate Jews, ignore it. It’s their mantra. But if it writes Zionist are filthy Jews, possibly read it, but stop instantly when you see it’s a rarity to lure the loony left. Don’t consume old hatred.
Then, think what you reasonably can (and should) do to save life and limb. Not frantically, only rationally. Make emergency plans for doing your part.
Then, think if you’d use your democratic rights to write or demonstrate.
Then, pray it’ll become better soon. Pray for peace, not victory. Pray for love, not anger. Pray for healing, not harming. Pray for life, not death.
Then, you’re informed, you prayed, you know how to protect yourself, then celebrate. Sing, dance, smile, do random favors, learn Jewish stuff, and cut off negative thoughts and words by yourself and others.
Antisemitism‘s old and ticking. Meanwhile, don’t postpone living well until Redemption comes. Living well now is the best ‘revenge.’ Jew-hatred may survive us, but our good name surely will last longer. L’cha-yeem!
