IHRA International Anti-Semitism Definition

“Anti-Semitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of anti-Semitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities.”

As adopted in May 2016 by the 34 member countries of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA).

Our campaign’s pledge draws upon the IHRA international definition of anti-Semitism and its list of specific behaviors used to discriminate against the Jewish people and the Jewish State of Israel. Some of these behaviors include:

  • Accusing Jewish citizens of being more loyal to Israel, or to the alleged priorities of Jews worldwide, than to the interest of their own nations;
  • Accusing the Jews as a people, or Israel as a State, of inventing or exaggerating the Holocaust;
  • Drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis;
  • Denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination, e.g., by claiming that the existence of a State of Israel is a racist endeavor;
  • Applying double standards by requiring of Israel a behavior not expected or demanded of any other democratic nation.
