How can I best support and protect my Jewish family?

I’m a M50 non-Jew married to a Jewish woman and we have 3 children together. I’ve never been particularly religious but before we got married I promised that our children would attend synagogue and be raised in the Jewish tradition. I have, for the most part, kept that promise. We attend services every Friday night and my father-in-law is the rabbi. I’ve been to Israel twice and I love the Jewish people especially the emphasis on family and community which i haven’t quite found anywhere else. My question is: Given the recent events in Israel and the large spike in antisemitism, how can I best be an advocate for my family and the Jewish community? Although I’ve certainly been aware of antisemitism and have discussed it at great length with her family (Her grandparents were Holocaust survivors), I’m ashamed to admit that I didn’t realize how prevalent it is despite evidence all around me. For some reason it just wasn’t tangible to me. I’ve come to the stark realization that there are people who would kill my wife and kids if given the opportunity. I *think I get it now. I want to protect and advocate for my family, but I’m not sure exactly what that might look like. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance for your replies. All the best to all of you.
