Public Keynote Address by David Harris

From neo-Nazis marching in the U.S. to horrific jihadist attacks on European soil, antisemitism persists. One element, though, seems to be missing in the response: outrage. Will there be sustained attention by national leaders? Public rallies against antisemitism? Solidarity from partners? Appropriate legal responses? AJC CEO David Harris, one of the Jewish world’s leading experts on global trends, examines the dangers of what he has called “the growing normalization of antisemitism" from the frontlines.

I would also like to express my appreciation to Indiana University for nurturing one of the world's leading research institutes for the study of antisemitism. At a time when antisemitism and anti-Zionism are on the upsurge, the courses, conferences, and publications of Indiana's Institute for the Study of Contemporary Antisemitism make a uniquely important contribution to higher education.

Michael McRobbie

Acts of antisemitic hatred—here or everywhere in the world—must be a matter of deep concern to all people because criminal acts of hatred against any group threaten the freedom of all people. In a diverse and increasingly global society, we absolutely depend on tolerance and respect for all people. We cannot afford to ignore the lessons drawn from serious and informed study of present-day antisemitism and its deep connections with centuries-old traditions of suspicion and hatred. Professor Rosenfeld and the Institute for the Study of Contemporary Antisemitism are performing an invaluable service through their international leadership in this timely study.
