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.
