Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs Conference Against Global Antisemitism

The 4th International Conference of the Global Forum for Combating Antisemitism

On the 28-30th May 2013, The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry for Jerusalem and Diaspora Affairs organized the 4th GFCA conference in Jerusalem. The aim was to serve as an arena for individuals, organizations and government representatives from more than 50 states and six different religions, to come up with a strategy to combat antisemitism.

That task was successfully achieved and is presented herewith in the linked document entitled

The Action Plan for Combating Antisemitism 2013 and Beyond.

This is not a document prepared by the Israeli government or by any other single organ, it represents the outcome of 3 days of intensive work by many of the conference participants. The common denominator of all participants was their concern of the persistence of antisemitism in the 21st century.

This document stresses the urgent need to fight antisemitism, which is not only an Israeli problem or just a Jewish problem, it is the problem of every society in which it is allowed to manifest itself.
