Antisemitism today is a multi-faceted threat that violates the safety, security, and sense of belonging for Jewish communities around the world. Like all forms of intolerance and discrimination, antisemitism has a profound impact on the whole of society. It is no longer confined to extremist circles and has become increasingly mainstreamed, including on social media.
The event will be hosted by the United States Mission to the United Nations and the Permanent Missions of Argentina, Canada, Israel, Morocco, and the United Kingdom to the United Nations.
