2019 Annual Assessment

JPPI’s Anti-Semitism Index on Europe is presented here for the fifth year. The index aims to measure the discomfort of European Jewry and the threat levels against it. This integrated index, meant as a tool for policy-makers, relates to three complementary dimensions of anti-Semitism affecting individual Jews and communal Jewish life. Our integrative index utilizes existing data collected globally by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and locally by others (such as CNN, Eurobarometer, IFOP, UEJF, JPR), anti-Semitic harassment figures collected by local Jewish organizations and governmental agencies entrusted with security (such as CST in UK, SPCJ in France, and various specialized governmental agencies), and findings regarding perceptions of anti-Semitism among Jews (FRA, AJC and JPPI’s survey).
