global forum on anti-semitism - may 2015

The 5th Global Forum  for Combating Antisemitism  will take place at the International Convention Center in Jerusalem from May 12th - 14th with addresses by world leaders. 

The Global Forum for Combating Antisemitism (GFCA) is the premier biennial gathering for assessing the state of Antisemitism globally, and formulating effective forms of societal and governmental response. The GFCA is an active coalition of public figures, political leaders, heads of civil society, clergy, journalists, diplomats, educators and concerned citizens dedicated to the advance of tolerance towards the other in public life and the defeat of Antisemitism and other forms of racial and ethnic hatred. The Forum serves as an important meeting place for exchange of knowledge and for formulating the global work plan for combating Antisemitism.

The Global Forum this year will focus on two main themes:
•    The Oldest Hatred in the Newest Vessels: Confronting Antisemitism and Hate Speech on the Internet and in Social Media

•    The Rise of Antisemitism in Europe's Cities Today: Means of Response

The concluding day is devoted to the work of the twelve working groups, and preparing and updating the Action Plan for Combating Antisemitism 2015 and Beyond.
