Dear Friends,

As the world paused to observe Yom Hashoah, leaders around the world spoke of the need to strengthen a culture of Holocaust remembrance amidst rising antisemitism, and Holocaust distortion.

To mark the occasion, Alaska became the 25th U.S. state to endorse the IHRA working definition of antisemitism, and global antisemitism envoys gathered in Jerusalem to discuss pathways to effectively combat resurgent Jew-hatred.

Amidst this period of remembrance, a series of new reports painted a disturbing picture of rising antisemitism worldwide. An annual study released by Tel Aviv University found that in 2021 “the largest Jewish populations outside Israel witnessed sharp increases in the number of recorded antisemitic incidents.”

The report attributed this global surge to “the strengthening in some countries of the radical populist right and the anti-Zionist radical left.” Record-breaking incidents of antisemitism were recorded in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Germany, France, the Netherlands, and Switzerland.

This week saw a surge in anti-Zionist antisemitic attacks, which saw a Jewish man violently beaten at a pro-Palestinian protest in New York City. Anti-Israel protesters in three German cities assaulted journalists and police while chanting “sh*tty Jews” and “strike, oh Qassam, don’t let the Zionists sleep.”

Similar protests calling for the destruction of the Jewish state through an intifada, took place in Los Angeles, Chicago, and Toronto. During this period of incitement, an Imam on official Palestinian Authority TV called for the “destruction of the tyrannical Jews.”

On campus, the AEPi Jewish fraternity house at Rutgers University was egged for a second year during its Yom Hashoah ceremony, days after being targeted by Students in Justice for Palestine (SJP) protesters who spat at the Jewish students while yelling antisemitic slurs.

SJP protesters also targeted the Hillel Jewish student center at the University of Illinois, and the Muslim Student Association at American University pulled out of an interfaith iftar and seder with that campus’ Jewish center after holding it accountable to the government of Israel, and accusing it of supporting “apartheid.”

This week’s global antisemitism report highlights 38 new media reports of antisemitic incidents. The total includes 13 (34.2%) from the far-right, 5 (13.2%) from the far-left, 15 (39.5%) with Islamist motivations, and 5 (13.2%) unidentifiable in nature.

The historic increase in antisemitic incidents in the U.S. is linked to a lack of knowledge about the Holocaust.⁠
According to a survey by the Claims Conference, 11% of young American adults believe that Jews were responsible for the Holocaust, and nearly half have seen Holocuast denial or distortion online.



Sunday marked Armenian Genocide Memorial Day. During World War I, more than one and a half million Armenians perished in a systematic mass murder and ethnic cleansing campaign carried out by the Ottoman Empire.
We stand in solidarity with the Armenian people and vow never again, anywhere!
