Antisemitism and Hate

Hate of all forms, including antisemitism, has surged across the United States in recent years, highlighting the critical need to improve tracking, response to, and prevention of hate crimes, white supremacist violence, and spread of online hate.

Fighting antisemitism is a core objective of JCPA—in fact, it is at the heart of everything we do. We were founded on the belief that the best way to defeat antisemitism is to actively engage the Jewish community in American public life, working in common cause with diverse communities and organizations, and giving voice to Jewish values of fairness and justice.

Antisemitism is inextricably linked to other types of hate, such as anti-Muslim animus, xenophobia, nationalism, misogyny, and anti-LGBTQ attitudes, and it is crucial that we fight all forms of hate and bigotry together. Only by joining together with other marginalized groups to foster mutual understanding and amplify our collective voices can we overcome this recent rise in hate and violence.

JCPA is working to combat antisemitism on many fronts, urging Congress to:

  • Confirm the appointment of a Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Antisemitism.
  • Pass legislation to improve tracking, response to, and prevention of hate crimes, white supremacist violence, and the spread of online hate, both in the U.S. and abroad.
  • Redouble the federal government’s efforts to counter the spread of online hate and prevent domestic terrorism by white supremacists and other violent extremists.
