Fighting Antisemitism

Fighting Antisemitism reminds us that antisemitism did not begin, nor end with the Holocaust. It is present today – and on the rise.

What is Antisemitism? 

Antisemitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred towards Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of antisemitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions, and religious facilities. (International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance)

Examples of Antisemitism

Characterizing Israel as being part of a sinister world conspiracy of Jewish control of the media, economy, government, or other financial, cultural or societal institutions

Holding individuals or institutions, because they are Jewish, responsible for real or imagined wrongdoing committed by Israel.

Accusing Jews of setting aside their loyalty to the Jewish people and/or Israel

Using symbols and images that present all Jews as collectively guilty for the actions of the State of Israel

Treating Israel differently solely because it is a Jewish state, using standards different than those applied to other countries.


Visit the Impact Lab

Using the Holocaust as a core case study, the Impact Lab is a facilitated experience that follows the Museum’s mission to reject hatred, promote understanding, and inspire change. The Impact Lab is a space designed to explore how hatred manifests in our world and how we can respond. By investigating our own identities and the historical mistreatment of others, we can give ourselves the tools to create change in our community.
