Anti-Semitism

Anti-Semitism refers to discrimination, hostility, persecution, and prejudice targeting Jews. In 2016, the 31 member-states of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance adopted a working definition of anti-Semitism: “Antisemitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward 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.”
