If California educational leaders are serious about combating antisemitism and hate, they should include the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) Working Definition of Antisemitism in the ESMC. Governor Gavin Newsom should endorse the IHRA Working Definition of Antisemitism.
This year, for the first time, we carried out two surveys in parallel. Combined, the two surveys form the first-ever AJC State of Antisemitism in America Report. This report lays bare the very different ways American Jews and the general public understand antisemitism, enabling us to identify key challenges and more effectively target our education and advocacy efforts as we seek to eradicate this most ancient form of hatred.
