Dear Friends,

This week we continued to see devastating antisemitic acts of violence, vandalism, and harassment targeting Jewish communities around the world following the recent conflict between Israel and Hamas.

In the UK, the highest number of recorded antisemitic incidents ever occurred in the month of May. In Germany, Muslim extremists staged a Nazi-style rally. In Sweden, a non-Jewish man wearing a kippah out of solidarity was assaulted by several men and called a “Jewish bastard,” and in France, an Algerian man threatened passersby in front of a synagogue, shouting, “We’re going to kill you all!”

In Los Angeles, a synagogue and a kosher restaurant were vandalized and two young Jewish brothers were targeted by paintball fire. In Massachusetts, police are investigating the vandalism of the Harvard Hillel center. Meanwhile, President Joe Biden again condemned rising antisemitism in the United States.

In an interview this week, Combat Antisemitism Movement Director Sacha Roytman-Dratwa emphasized the importance of IHRA definition adoptions as a response to the current global antisemitism crisis.

CAM’s weekly global antisemitism report highlights 63 new media reports of antisemitic incidents, including 24 (38%) with Islamist motivations, 17 (27%) from the far right, 10 (16%) from the far left, and 12 unidentifiable (19%).

A spike in antisemitic incidents in May is connected to the conflict between Israel and the Palestinian group Hamas in the Middle East, a Toronto Jewish community group claims.

The report from the United Jewish Appeal (UJA) Federation of Greater Toronto found that more than 50 antisemitic incidents were reported in the greater Toronto region in May 2021 — five times the monthly average so far for 2021.

This week marked the 80th anniversary of the Farhud – the antisemitic massacre of Iraqi Jews.

In the Nazi-inspired pogrom, hundreds of Jews were murdered in Baghdad, and thousands more had their property looted.

This violent ethnic cleansing attempt sped up the demise of Iraq’s ancient Jewish community, with many Iraqi Jews ultimately moving to the new State of Israel a decade later.
