Antisemitism has become a major threat to Jews and American society. Recently we have seen the worst antisemitic violence in US history as well as an increasing presence of antisemitism in political and public discourse. In a perspective based on his decades of fighting antisemitism both nationally and internationally, Dr. Mark Weitzman will discuss how a definition of antisemitism has become a powerful new tool in the fight against antisemitism and in creating new allies in this struggle. Weitzman serves as the Director of Government Affairs at the Simon Wiesenthal Center and is a past Chair of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance Committee on Antisemitism and Holocaust Denial.
