Dear Friends,

This week, the United States commemorated the third anniversary of the Tree of Life Synagogue massacre in Pittsburgh – the deadliest antisemitic attack in the nation’s history. U.S. President Biden vowed to combat antisemitism in honor of the victims saying, “We must always stand up and speak out against antisemitism with clarity and conviction, and rally against the forces of hate in all its forms…”

Meanwhile, the administration’s nominee for U.S. Ambassador-at-Large to Monitor & Combat Antisemitism Deborah Lipstadt condemned the progressive movement Sunrise DC’s boycott of liberal Jewish groups as “an overtly antisemitic act.” In New York, Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations met with Secretary General António Guterres to encourage the UN to adopt the IHRA working definition of antisemitism.

Three years on from the Pittsburgh attack, the dangers of far-right white supremacist Jew-hatred were all too apparent in Texas this week where Neo-Nazis twice hung public banners adjacent to a heavily Jewish neighborhood in Austin reading, “Vaxx the Jews.” The same group held a crude demonstration outside a San Antonio Jewish Community Center with banners that read “Honk if you know the Holocaust was fake.” Antisemitic flyers blaming Jews for the pandemic were also distributed to homes in a nearby neighborhood, and antisemitic vandalism was found outside an Austin-area high school, close to where the Neo-Nazi group hung their banners.

Jews in New York City experienced a several shocking antisemitic assaults. These high-profile incidents occurred amidst a new American Jewish Committee survey which showed that fear of antisemitism spurred 40% of American Jews to change their behavior over the past year.

In Germany, three attackers beat a man unconscious on a Berlin street for refusing to shout “Free Palestine.” In neighboring Austria, a Syrian refugee told a judge he doesn’t “hate all Jews, just those in Palestine,” while he was being sentenced for attacking an Austrian Jewish leader and vandalizing an Austrian synagogue.

Leading artists and thinkers from the Black and Jewish American communities came together for the inaugural event “Combating Racism and Antisemitism Together: Shaping an Omni-American Future”. The unique gathering, hosted by the Combat Antisemitism Movement, was designed as a cultural celebration to bring the communities together and deliver a resounding message against racism and antisemitism.

This week’s global antisemitism report highlights 46 new antisemitic incidents reported by the media. The total includes 26 (56.5%) from the far-right, 6 (13.1%) from the far-left, 3 (6.5%) with Islamist motivations, and 11 (23.9%) unidentifiable in nature.
