October 2020: Antisemitism in review
Jewish communities around the world remain vigilant and concerned amid unrelenting proliferations of xenophobia and antisemitism, alongside a steady rise in anti-Jewish expressions and incidents across the globe.
The World Jewish Congress has compiled a brief review of some of the concerning trends and incidents witnessed and recorded over the course of October 2020. Among these incidents, a synagogue in Hamberg Germany was attacked on Sukkot, Jewish sites in Greece were vandalized for the third time in a month, and the Swedish city of Malmö suspended the Arab Book Fair amid revelation of an antisemitic book for sale. We will continue to monitor developments as they arise and remain committed to working together with our communities to ensure a safer and more tolerant world for all.
