The use of negative stereotypes about Jews spans centuries and continents. With the backdrop of the Holocaust as the most extreme example of anti-Semitism in the modern era, the Museum launches The Center for the Study of Anti-Semitism, under the leadership of Abraham H. Foxman. Through scholarship, exhibitions, and programs, the Center will examine where the specific hatred of Jews comes from, why it continues to persist, and the dangers it poses to a free society.

ANTI-SEMITISM NOW: HOSTED BY ABRAHAM H. FOXMAN
