European Jew Hatred Is Not A Thing of the Past
In Europe today, there is an increasing mainstream hate and disrespect of Jews and core Judaic values. Polls taken across Europe estimate that at least 150 million Europeans still harbor extreme anti-Jewish and/or anti-Israel feelings.
Across Europe, armed police stand guard, protecting synagogues where, in Germany alone, 80 have been attacked in recent years. Jewish children are bullied, 25% of people are afraid to wear kippot or Star of David jewelry in public, and political parties, from Greece to Hungary to Ukraine, increase their clout by stirring up anti-Semitism.
We cannot allow this to continue without fighting back. Partner with the Simon Wiesenthal Center and you will become part of our worldwide efforts to fight back against anti-Semitism and Jew hatred in Europe and around the world.
Your support is critical – we can’t do it without you.
