Reality Check: An Examination of Anti-Semitism in 2014

The U.S. Department of State and the Yale Program for the Study of Anti-Semitism sponsored a discussion, “Reality Check:  An Examination of Anti-Semitism in 2014,” on June 26 from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. at the Yale MacMillan Center in New Haven, Connecticut.


The event covered the current trends in Anti-Semitism. The panel was moderated by Rabbi James E. Ponet, Lecturer in Law at Yale Law School and the Howard M. Holtzmann Jewish Chaplain at Yale. Panelists included Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism Ira Forman (@SEASForman) and Roya Hakakian, a fellow at Yale University’s Whitney Humanities Center and a founding member of the Iran Human Rights Documentation Center.


“More than six decades after World War II ended, six decades after the world’s collective horror at the Holocaust, anti-Semitism remains a dangerous menace. We need to continue to tell the world this is simply unacceptable. At the beginning of the 21st century, we need to come together to condemn anti-Semitism in every form…”
- Secretary of State John Kerry, Remarks to Anti-Defamation League’s Centennial Summit, April 30, 2013
