2019 Annual Assessment

The rate of anti-Semitic incidents in North America is significantly lower than in Europe or the Arab world. However, recently, American Jews have been voicing concerns of rising anti-Semitism, mostly among radical groups on the right. The prominence and acceptance of Jews in the American political and cultural elites has no parallel in modern Jewish history.19 Despite this, there is concern over a “slippery slope” and a reversion to previous eras (until the 1950s and 1960s), in which discrimination of Jews, and anti-Jewish expressions were more common.
