Since 2000, antisemitism has been dramatically on the rise, first in Europe, then in the United States. Most recently, as Hamas escalated attacks toward Israel in May 2021, a wave of violent Jew-hatred swept across America and the world, with Jews beaten in city streets, subjected to hateful vitriol, and intimidated on social media. How are governments responding to this frightening resurgence? How are Americans and European leaders working to counter these global threats? U.S. Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Antisemitism Deborah Lipstadt and European Commission Coordinator on Combating Antisemitism and Fostering Jewish Life Katharina von Schnurbein, share their views from unique vantage points as part of The Max Fisher Annual Program moderated by Simone Rodan-Benzaquen, AJC Europe Managing Director.
