Anti-Semitism In America

Discussion led by Myra Clark -Siegel

AJC Westchester/Fairfield AJC Regional Director

 February 9th at 8 PM

 

One year ago, on the anniversary of the attack on the congregations in Pittsburgh, AJC released the results of a landmark survey of American Jewish opinion on antisemitism in America. The poll represented the largest and most comprehensive examination ever of American Jews’ experiences and perceptions of antisemitism and made it clear that American Jews view antisemitism as an increasingly significant problem in America.

Recently, AJC released a follow-up survey entitled “Antisemitism in America 2020”. AJC   replicated last year’s survey, but this year both Jews and non-Jews were interviewed on their views to broaden understanding of perceptions of antisemitism in our country. In addition, questions were added to explore views on antisemitism vs anti-Zionism.
The survey findings reveal a deep anxiety among American Jews and a disturbing lack of awareness among the general public of the severity of antisemitism in the U.S. (Zoom Link: https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJArf-isqz4sHNKtebUWuT4JL0vfXWX-lmsx)
