Swastikas splashed across college campuses. Holocaust denial sweeping across social media. Shootings, vandalism, public bullying, synagogue attacks.
We know how we as Jews make sense of the hatred. But how does broader American society perceive antisemitism in America?
The American Jewish Committee (AJC) seeks to answer this pressing question in its just-released report, The State of Antisemitism in America 2020, which is based on parallel surveys of American Jews and the US general public and reveals startling disparities in their perceptions of antisemitism.
The Streicker Center is proud to welcome Avi Mayer, AJC’s Managing Director of Global Communications, and Holly Huffnagle, AJC’s US Director for Combatting Antisemitism, for a discussion of the report’s findings with Manya Brachear Pashman and Seffi Kogen, co-hosts of AJC’s weekly podcast, People of the Pod, which will air the conversation in a special episode later in the week.
Closing remarks by David Harris, CEO AJC.
