The IHRA Definition of Antisemitism: Eleven Examples, Eleven Stories

On September 16, 2020, The Combat Anti-Semitism (CAM) hosted a live studio event entitled “The IHRA Definition of Anti-Semitism: Eleven Examples, Eleven Stories.” The event featured eleven examples of modern anti-Semitism under the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition alongside eleven corresponding real stories from victims of anti-Semitism, bringing the IHRA definition to life.

In the fight against global antisemitism, the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of antisemitism has been an integral tool for governments, non-profits, academic institutions, corporations and many other entities. The IHRA definition was formulated and agreed upon by its by 34 member countries and has been formally adopted by 27 countries and many other states, cities and organizations around the globe. However, many leaders and decision-makers are not yet familiar with this powerful tool to assess hatred towards Jews and maintain accountability.
