The Concluding Documents of the 5th Global Forum for Combating Antisemitism 12-14 May 2015, Jerusalem
The Global Forum for Combating Antisemitism is the premier biennial gathering for assessing the state of antisemitism globally, and formulating effective forms of societal and governmental response. The GFCA is an active coalition of public figures, political leaders, heads of civil society, clergy, journalists, diplomats, educators and concerned citizens dedicated to the advance of tolerance towards the other in public life and the defeat of antisemitism and other forms of racial and ethnic hatred.
Between May 12 – 14, 2015, 1,200 concerned global citizens from more than 80 countries and 7 faith traditions, political and religious leaders, internet professionals, the leadership of the major Jewish organizations from around the world, convened in Jerusalem for three days of intensive discussion on ways and means of combating antisemitism given the steep rise in antisemitic incidents in 2014 – 2015, particularly in Europe, and the emerging challenges due to growing hates speech on the web and in social media platforms.
