The United States was once the Golden Land where Jews could escape centuries of persecution. However, recent events suggest not only that this dream has not been realized but that general socioeconomic, political, and cultural trends are moving in the opposite direction. ISGAP’s forthcoming publication, Poisoning the Wells: Antisemitism in Contemporary America, provides a detailed analysis of contemporary antisemitism, with a focus on the United States, and examines its origins, its development, and its alarming implications. The book, edited by Corinne E. Blackmer and Andrew Pessin, will debut this fall.

The book will soon be made available on Amazon.
