Antisemitism Survey

This past week there was a debate within the Jewish community on whether a recent tweet from an elected official could contribute to fueling antisemitism. Recently, some have suggested that a majority of Jews in America are exposed to antisemitic remarks and violence. At the same time, there have been multiple reports on the increase in antisemitic hate crimes across the country.

But not everything that you see in the news directly corresponds to your daily concerns and experience.

The American Jewish Congress would like to know more about the direct experience of Jewish Americans with antisemitism in their day to day lives.

Have you ever been a target of antisemitic violence or threats? How threatened do you feel amid news on growing antisemitism? Have you changed any of your daily activities or habits due to news on the increase in hate crimes?

Your participation will help us better understand how antisemitism is affecting your lives and what can we do to better combat and respond to it.
