The State of Antisemitism in America

Hosted By: American Jewish Committee (AJC)

Each day seems to bring more troubling news about the state of antisemitism in America. Over the last few years, American Jews have been murdered in synagogues, Jewish institutions have been vandalized, congregants have been taken hostage, multiple communities have faced bomb threats, and celebrity antisemitism has brought anti-Jewish conspiracies into the mainstream. With all this happening, how are American Jews feeling? What are their personal experiences with antisemitism? Are young American Jews facing antisemitism differently than adults? And what does the broader American public know? To help answer these important questions and more, please join Holly Huffnagle, AJC U.S. Director for Combating Antisemitism, Meggie Wyschogrod Fredman, AJC Senior Director of the Alexander Young Leadership Department, and Melanie Maron Pell, AJC Chief Field Operations Officer.
