Corona-inspired antisemitism has accompanied the present pandemic situation, along recent months. It originates in a variety of countries and of political and religious groups and circles, worldwide:  The Kantor Center publishes a weekly report – material and analysis.

The question I would like to address is whether this is a new kind of antisemitism, with its own specific characteristics, or is it a continuation of former trends and accusations? Given recent years data and reports on antisemitism, has the number of antisemitic cases increased, has their nature and causes changed?
