European Forum on Antisemitism

The European Forum on Antisemitism is a resource for Jewish community representatives, public opinion leaders, and members of non-governmental organizations dedicated to combating antisemitism. The Forum fosters advocacy, awareness and alertness to reduce the danger of antisemitism, a destabilizing force for democracy.

The European Forum on Antisemitism supports the use of the working definition of antisemitism, first adopted in 2005 by the European Monitoring Center on Racism and Xenophobia (EUMC), now the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA). The European Forum on Antisemitism provides more than thirty translations of the definition written by experts.
