The IHRA Definition of Anti-Semitism: Eleven Examples, Eleven Stories

August 25, 2020 | Closed

With the worrying rise in anti-Semitism around the globe, the time is now to build momentum and encourage the adoption of the IHRA definition worldwide.

We are pleased to invite you to join our live studio event on September 16, 2020 at 1:00 PM EDT: “The IHRA Definition of Anti-Semitism: Eleven Examples, Eleven Stories.” The event will feature the eleven examples of modern anti-Semitism under the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition alongside eleven corresponding real stories from victims of anti-Semitism, bringing the IHRA definition to life.

In the fight against global anti-Semitism, the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of anti-Semitism has been an integral tool for governments, non-profits, academic institutions, corporations and many other entities. The IHRA definition was formulated and agreed upon by its by 34 member countries and has been formally adopted by 27 countries and many other states, cities and organizations around the globe.

The Combat Anti-Semitism Movement (CAM) and our over 280,000-person coalition have all endorsed the definition, however, many leaders and decision-makers are not yet familiar with this powerful tool to assess hatred towards Jews and maintain accountability.

The event will be live streamed and can be watched below. Please visit this link the day of the event. No registration is required. You can also watch the live broadcast of the event on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
